The Christmas Candle reads like a fairy tale and is likely to appeal to many. A simple feel good story for the Christmas season, the book encourages those with faith to ask for anything. The story is set in the mid 1800’s in the tiny town of Gladstone, England. Every 25 years a heavenly visitor touches a candle. The candle makers hand out the candles to those in need and tell them to pray. Every time this has resulted in something wonderful happening to the individual receiving the candle. This year an accident causes the candle makers to be unsure of which candle has been touched. A young minister with a questionable past struggles with his faith and doubts the miracle of the Christmas Candle. An engaging story, The Christmas Candle examines human nature and our tendency to waver in faith and question the goodness of God. Forgiveness, faith, and compassion are all rewarded in this quick, but powerful read.
Reasons to Read: Quick. Easy. God-centered look at the season.
Reasons to Pass: For some this book may be too simple with an under-developed story and too basic plot line.
