Excellent Christmas story of love, birth and forgiveness! Recommend the audio version as the sound effects are superb! Dec 17, Rachel rated it really liked it. Heartwarming short story with excerpts from another book of his. Great, easy Christmas read. I liked the dramatization on the first one but I wasn't that crazy about the telling of "Cosmic Christmas.

This is a short, fictional tale by renowned Christian author Max Lucado. If you know me well or have already read my other Goodreads review, then you know about my near-obsession with Lucado he's one of my favorite writers across all genres. I figured I'd give this book a read because I'm trying to fulfill a goal of reading all of Lucado's published material!
This story is a little bit about Christmas The holiday felt much more like a backdrop or something incidental to the story, not critical This is a short, fictional tale by renowned Christian author Max Lucado. This story is a little bit about Christmas The holiday felt much more like a backdrop or something incidental to the story, not critical to the story's progression.
For instance, with a little bit of maneuvering, I think Lucado could have set this story on any other holiday or even on any ordinary day and the story could have still worked. Personally, I prefer Lucado's nonfictional works to his fictional ones, but this one was gripping nonetheless I read it in a day because I couldn't put it down! Dec 12, Barbara rated it it was amazing. After I got into this story, I realized that I had seen the movie. Still, it's a great story of forgiveness and finding your true self. We all can take a page out of this book. Do you have someone you need to forgive this Christmas?
While Christmas is a time of great joy for many, it is also a very sad time for some. Try to make it a happy one for someone else. Nov 23, Elaine rated it it was amazing Shelves: christmas. The main character, a man whose father receives a photo in the mail — a photo of a church — Clearwater Lutheran Church. He sets out to find the church pictured in the photo. What he learns upon finding the church surprises him very much.
This book wasn't bad but it wasn't the best either. It was really short and didn't take long to read but it also did not have a lot of details.
I think it could have been expanded and would have been better but it was an ok book the way it was. Dec 03, Laura rated it really liked it Shelves: christmas , read-in Another super short story!
This one is about making mistakes, forgiveness, and love. It begins with the story of a hand-carved nativity set at a church in Texas, and ends with secrets revealed and hearts mending. Dec 13, Esther rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-in , reviewed , fiction , devotionals , kindle , christmas.
