Book Description

Oct. 9 2001
In 1994, Richard Paul Evans, then an unknown writer, self-published a short book entitled The Christmas Box. That book went on to become an international bestseller, selling more than seven million copies and touching the lives of many more people along the way.

The Christmas Box Miracle is the story behind the book that has become a Christmas classic: how a man writes and publishes a book which helps grieving people to heal and lost souls to find their way home. It is Evans's story: his own spiritual journey and stories of people he encountered along the way -- miraculous stories of healing and divinity that often defy explanation.

In sharing the story behind The Christmas Box, Richard Paul Evans has given us a story of miracles, hope and healing for all seasons.

Product Description

From Amazon

It began with The Christmas Box, a humble story about a caretaker and his family who befriend a lonely widow at Christmas time. In The Christmas Box Miracle, author Richard Paul Evans offers the back story, showing us how his self- published book became a runaway bestseller. We first meet the author as a young boy, learning about the family and faith that led him to become such as reliable and unpretentious narrator. As it turns out, Evans grew up in a Mormon household amongst a band of taunting brothers and a few childhood ghosts. His mother lost a stillborn daughter when Evans was a toddler. She also suffered from severe depression and suicidal tendencies. This backdrop helps us understand Evans's dedication to bring healing and hope to life. More than a publishing success story, The Christmas Box Miracle speaks about Evans's ability to change readers' lives and foster miracle after miracle. Fans of Evans already know to pull out their handkerchiefs. --Gail Hudson

I couldn't put the book down. Richard takes you on self-publishing journey that anyone who has self-published can relate to. I have to admit the book made me laugh and cry. I too have experienced many of the ups and downs of the book business. But one thing remains the same..."it's the lives we are touching by the message of our books." Anyone who has self-published this book is a must!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and restored belief in miracles. June 27 2002
I read the Christmas Box trilogy and just felt there was something magical in this story and the writing. After reading The Christmas Box Miracle, I understood the spiritual forces of healing and guidance the author received. As soon as I was done with both books, I boxed them up with a purple ribbon around both books because they were so special and sent them to my sister in Texas.

3.0 out of 5 stars enough is enough April 17 2002
First of all i really loved the christmas box and the other 2 novels that continue the tale but I think it is time to let the christmas box go. Although I really like several of the stories i was some what disapointed, at the end of the book i felt like i had somewhat been let down. I think that authors don't need to let us know about their books. the books are enough. it is a little silly if you think about it. Authors who write books about writing books it feels a little repeditive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book for Every Season! March 25 2002
Several years ago I watched a TV movie called The Christmas Box, which starred Maureen O'Hara and Richard Thomas. I'm not sure exactly what attracted me to this prsentation, most likely the cast, but not only did I enjoy the perfromances but more importantly the message of this made for TV movie. A few weeks after this I came across a book with this title and read the dust jacket. Immediately, I realized the TV movie was based on this book and I just had to read it. Not only did I gulp down this book the time I read it but almost as soon as I finished it I just had to read it again. And since that time I have read The Christmas Box almost every holiday season and all of Richard Paul Evans other titles as well. Today, this small book continues to speak volumes and has affected the lives of many readers, perhaps most of all the author and his family.
One would have to say that the success of this book is truly a miracle. And it is this very sucess which Evans addresses in his new book titled The Christmas Box Miracle. Part memoir, part philosophy, in this book Evans offers his readers the story behind the writing of The Christmas Box, which was intended only as a gift for his two small daughters.
Evans begins this book by discussing his basic philosophy and the premise that there are forces at work, some known and some unknown, which alter our lives. He then depicts his large Mormon family and the prophecy of hsi grandfathers who said that, "He (Evans) would walk among noble men and royalty." He describes his fathers lucrative job and the material lives his family was afforded and then his fathers loss of his job and their move back to Utah.
