The Christmas Candle - Max Lucado

4 Stars!

Journey back to a simpler time, to a small English village where nothing out of the ordinary ever happens. Except at Christmastime.

When a mysterious angel suddenly appears in a lowly candlemaker's shop, the holy and the human collide in a way that only God could imagine.

Glowing bright with a timeless message, The Christmas Candle will warm your heart with a surprising reminder of God's bountiful love.

More than 100 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers atthe Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy. 

First of all - I am a huge fan of Max Lucado! He is my favorite Non-fiction christian writer and I personally own 14 of his books!
This is the first work of fiction I have read by him. I love historical fiction so this was right up my alley. This book was very well written, as are all of his books. I did love the historical aspect of it. Max did a great job of painting a picture. I really did feel as though I was there and could visualize it all. It was a little bit slow in spots for me, and not my favorite by him, but - still a really great read!
"The mystery of God unsettles us all, Reverend. But isn't mystery where God works? If he does only what we understand, is he God?"
Are you looking for a Christmas miracle? You might just find it in this book!
A very nice, quick, and heartwarming inspirational story!
