The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado {Book Review}

Publisher's Description:
It’s 1864 in Gladstone, England, a tiny village in the Cotswolds. Nothing out of the ordinary ever happens here. Except at Christmas time. This year, Edward Haddington, a lowly candle maker is visited by a mysterious angel. That angel silently imparts a precious gift. The candle maker and his wife, Bea, have to make a difficult choice—who among them most needs a Christmas miracle? As hope blossoms in wintertime, soon the entire town glows brightly with Christmas joy.

My Thoughts:
"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?"

As usual, Max Lucado proves that a book doesn't need to be long to inspire and teach. This book is a quick read that provides food for thought, drawing you in immediately and keeping you engaged to the end. It is a bit predictable, but its heart-warming qualities make up for that. I am looking forward to seeing this as a movie. It will have to be expanded upon to make a full length movie, but if they stay true to the book, it will be wonderful.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
