A Heartwarming Collection of Christmas Stories and Reflections from Max Lucado

These stories—like your favorite Christmas ornaments—come in all shapes and sizes. They unfold in a variety of settings, from ancient Bethlehem to rural England. From a small Texas town to the heavenly realms. Some are short. Others many chapters long. Some offer reflections. Others imagine Christmas through the eyes of a burnt-out candle maker, a lonely business man, or heavenly angels.

Yet all are vintage Lucado, and all resonate with the wonder of the season.

In the mystery of Christmas, Max writes, we find its majesty. The mystery of how God became flesh, why he chose to come, and how much he must love his people. Such mysteries can never be solved, just as love can never be diagrammed. Christmas is best pondered, not with logic, but imagination.

Thats what each of these unique Christmas stories help us do. In the midst of the bustle and hurry that often distracts us this time of year, these stories free us to explore the ways in which Christs coming has forever changed history—and us.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful Jan. 11 2013
Format:Hardcover
Booksneeze sent me a book called Christmas stories by Max Lucado

It is many stories about The Christmas season and I found so it so beautiful to see how The birth of Jesus works into people lives. Also to see how the people who remember praise Jesus. I loved the book and the stories are so heartwarming and deep if you read it you will want to read it again even if it is not Christmas. I recommend to those who want read something that is real and does not make you feel down but it lifts you up in spirit I truly loved this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Is Still A Miracle Sept. 27 2011
By Upstate New York Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Though I have not read a great deal of Max Lucado's work, I have enjoyed what I have read. Similarly, Christmas Stories does not disappoint. It is a collection of short stories, many (if not most) pulled from previous books and sources. In some way, each story points us back to the manger in Bethlehem that day so long ago. But he also points us to an eternal story - not one merely rooted in history, but one that stretches across the ages: from Bethlehem, to rural England, and to the Midwestern USA. Though fiction, the book introduces us to men, women, children, and angels, who may have been effected by the coming of the Christ child that first Christmas day.

If you like Max Lucado, you will like Christmas Stories. If you like Christmas, you will like Christmas Stories. If you like inspirational Christmas stores, you will like Christmas Stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Stories in this Book! Dec 26 2011
By Renee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I received this book as a gift from one the preschoolers in my Pre-K class. I'm already a fan of Max Lucado (the book A Love Worth Giving: Living in the Overflow of God's Love started it all - awesome book!!) so I was pretty excited to read it! I loved the book to say in the least! The story that stuck out to me most was "An Angel's Story". I've never really thought of all the events of Christ's birth through the eyes of Gabriel. Now of course this is what is imagined of how it might have been, we don't know really what all went on between God, Gabriel, and Satan. It was a really intriguing read though and very thought-provoking for me. The Candle Maker story was good, too, I thought (really, they all were good!). Most of the stories are quick reads and they all are encouraging showing us God's Love. Definitely worth buying! I bought it off amazon for my Kindle and maybe I can now share the hard copy book with someone else!

I always look for a good book about Christmas; this was a really nice read for getting into the Christmas spirit. My favorite told about what was going on in heaven as the birth of Christ unfolded; seeing the story from the other side was interesting. It was easy to follow all the story lines.
