The Christmas Candle by best-selling author Max Lucado takes place in the heart of the Cotswolds, where life consists of hard work, tradition and cobblestone streets. But for Edward Haddington, a humble candle maker, life takes on a new meaning when he receives a mysterious visit from an angel—a visit that will not only change his life but the lives of everyone in Gladstone. And it will renew the faith of the new preacher.
The angel imparts a special gift to Edward but with it comes a heavy responsibility. He and his wife Bea must choose the person they feel is most needy of a miracle.
Through this delightful novella, Lucado shows that everyone needs a miracle at some time. Everyone needs a special touch from God, a miraculous provision or healing. And miracles don’t depend on the whim of man. They are the specialty of the one whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.
The Christmas Candle makes a great stocking stuffer or gift for a co-worker or friend. It will also be out in theaters as a movie in November.
Max Lucado is no stranger to San Diego. He recently spoke in the nearby county of Riverside for the Harvest Crusade.
