Product Description

Nathan Hurst hated Christmas. For the rest of the world it was a day of joy and celebration; for Nathan it was simply a reminder of the event that destroyed his childhood until a snowstorm, a cancelled flight, and an unexpected meeting with a young mother and her very special son would show him that Christmas is indeed the season of miracles. From the beloved author of the international bestseller The Christmas Box comes another timeless story of faith, hope, and healing.

    I am shocked to find this particular book mentioned on this site! I was very disappointed in this book. I got half way and had to close the book due to being heavily convicted.

    For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

    A balk of the book is about the boy seeing and hearing from those who have died. Furthermore the boy has the power to heal, and every time he does he gets weaker. Apart from Christ we can do nothing, but this boy is a "god" in his own right. This is a New Age book believers beware!

    I disagree with the previous review as I enjoyed reading this book. I will admit that I would not put it in my church library, b/c it may step out of the comfort zone of some people. The child in the book has the gift of healing. Some are not comfortable with the reality of this gift. However, it made me think about how the world would take advantage of such a gift. The boys gift places the mother in a true faith/parent struggle between allowing her child to share his gift and protecting his overall well being. I love to read good fiction and it is sometimes hard to find books that are not full of profanity or lust. This book was appropriate in these categories while also being interesting to read. It has a great plot and believable characters. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    After reading this book,I was surprised to find it on a Christian site. I wondered if the author might be Mormon, and an internet article confirmed that he is. The book has a definite New Age feel to it (out of body experiences, dead beings are seen only by the healer, healer crosses over to death at least twice and comes back.) Toward the end, Jesus is mentioned last in a short list of "extraordinary people who don't seem to belong to this earth". (The list includes Ghandi and Socrates.) There are references to prayer and fasting and general spirituality which may confuse new Christians. It is a shallow, post-modern novel. The healer (young boy) thinks that hell is here, a view that disagrees with what Jesus says. Please don't waste your time or money on this one. [General plot: a single mother with 2 children finds romance. Her son has "THE GIFT" of healing, but when he heals others he becomes weak. The ending is predictable.]
