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.

HASH(0xa8ba890c) out of 5 stars Christmas Is Still A Miracle Sept. 27 2011
By Upstate New York Reader - Published on
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.

This review is based on an electronic copy of the book provided by the publisher for the purpose of this review. There was no obligation to write a positive review.

HASH(0xa8ba8960) out of 5 stars Awesome Stories in this Book! Dec 26 2011
By Renee - Published on
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!

HASH(0xa8ba8c3c) out of 5 stars Pleasant Read Dec 26 2011
By DANA VANSCOY - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa8ba8b34) out of 5 stars Celebrate the Reason for the Christmas SeaSON! Aug. 13 2011
By Meagan @ Blooming with Books - Published on
Format: Hardcover

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

HASH(0xa8c1e18c) out of 5 stars stories about faith at Christmas time April 22 2013
By The Shires - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
One winter when my siblings and I were young, my mom bought a special book to read us during December. It was one of the Christmas In My Heart series by Joe L. Wheeler. I loved that book. (It was the beginning of a love for any of Dr. Wheeler's story collections I could get my hands on. But that's a whole different topic.)

Winters in Alaska are dark, long and cold. And the memories I have of all of us curled up in the living room while the wood stove crackled, listening to our special Christmas stories each December are warm ones. I always determined that I would try to recreate that special memory in our home one day. It may be well past Christmas time, but Max Lucado's Christmas Stories caught my eye when I saw it. I hoped it would be something like the Christmas In My Heart Series that I still someday hope to collect in its entirety.

Christmas Stories was a lot different than I expected. Instead of a collection of heartwarming, beautiful old stories from the past, it was a continuing story from the 1800s about a little town and the old, often repeated story of an angel, a candle and Christmas Miracles. It talked about a new Minister, and his introduction to the country people and the story of the candle.

It was, however, a book with two very different, and interesting stories in it. While it might not have been the kind of book I was looking for to read to our little family during the Christmas season, I enjoyed reading about the Christmas Candle and the way it reminded people of our GOD who still works miracles on behalf of His own. The second story is more modern. It is set in Texas and told the story of a German wood carver who made a nativity set and the effect it had on the church and others for years to come.

Maybe some winter, we'll read it together at Christmas time by our own little fireplace. If not, it was a good step in my search for our next favorite Christmas Story Collection!
