The candle is then given away to a person in great need and when that person lights this candle and then prays, whatever they have prayed for is granted to them.
It is 1864 and Edward Haddington and his wife Bea are last of the candle makers line. With no offspring, they are aware that this will be the last year that an angel will bless one of their candles. When the night arrives, Edward watches closely to see which candle the angel touchs but as he rises to retrieve it, he trips, spilling the box of candles. Neither he nor Bea know which candle is the special one. Then as the day approaches to give the candle away, and they are flooded with neighbors all asking for the blessed candle. Not knowing what to do, Edward and Bea give away all thirty candle to anyone that asks. No knowing who will be the blessed person, Edward and Bea know that Christmas is a time for Miracles.
I love this book. It is the perfect book to sit down with when you need a small break during the holidays. It will encourage you and remind you that joy is found in God and miracles come in all shapes and forms.

i blog 4 books3 Stars Out Of 5Sweet Christmas StoryDecember 4, 2013i blog 4 booksThe Christmas Candle by Max Lucado is a short Christmas novella. It was a really quick read, and a good first Christmas read of the season! While the story was very sweet, I found it to be quite confusing at the beginning. I just could not figure out exactly what was happening. I eventually caught on, but it was a little frustrating. I also got confused with ALL of the characters. There were a lot of them and they were just barely developed. I mean, the book is less than 200 pages, so it's not a lot of time to tell a story and let readers get to know a slew of characters. When it was all said and done, I did enjoy the book and really liked the message. The book has recently been made into a movie as well, and I'm hoping to go see it. It will be interesting to see how the movie compares to the book. [3 stars]
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program in exchange for my fair and honest review.
