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.

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.

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!

Pleasant Read Dec 26 2011
By DANA VANSCOY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

Celebrate the Reason for the Christmas SeaSON! Aug. 13 2011
By Meagan @ Blooming with Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
CHRISTMAS STORIES

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.

Includes an excerpt of GOD CAME NEAR
