It is a collection of heartwarming stories about the real meaning of Christmas- the birth of Jesus Christ. The stories all come from previous works of Max Lucado's and have been combined to create this book.
While it was not one of Max Lucado's best books, it is a good book for getting into the Christmas spirit. I originally read it hoping to find something good to read during Advent. There are a few stories that I plan to share with my children this Advent but it did not deliver like I expected.
If you are an avid Max Lucado reader, you have already read the stories that are included in this book. Overall I would consider this a good gift but not something I would suggest for a personal purchase.

By Max Lucado
A compilation of Christmas stories by Max Lucado celebrating the joy and wonder of the season. Some titles have been previously published, but are well worth another read.
The Christmas Candle is a story of faith, forgiveness, and miracles. When an accident happens who will receive the lost candle that will make their needed miracle come true?
The Christmas Child is a story of family and forgiveness. When an accident takes a life and changes two others will a family torn apart ever come together?
The Answer is Yes is a story of love, rebellion, and forgiveness. It is an allegory of our Heavenly Father's love of us and the forgiveness He offers to us His rebellious children.
The North Pole or the Manger? Ponders the man behind the myth of Santa Clause and the God who became Man. Comparing Jesus with Santa we see where we should seek eternal gifts.
Gabriel's Question ponders the mode of Jesus' coming. A peasant girl? A stable? For the Son of God?
The Night in the Stable dwells on Joseph and his feelings on the night of Jesus' birth.
No Room in the Inn
Jacob's Gift is a giving up of one's dreams by giving what you have to one who is without, a story of sacrifice.
An Angel's Story is story about the conflict to stop Jesus' coming birth. Lucifer is shown as a conniver who will stop at nothing to thwart God's plan for redemption, including a battle in Heaven and on Earth for the soul of humanity.
Tiny Mouth, Tiny Feet is Mary's prayer for her newborn son who will soon be her Savior and King.
