What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Max Lucado's The Christmas Candle tells a story with heart about a 19th-century English reverend who, due to the death of his wife and child, has lost his belief in the possibility of miracles. The analogy between religious faith and magical beliefs is made here, as a village grapples with its centuries-old tradition of believing in the miraculous powers of an angel-touched magical candle. A young unwed mother is abandoned by the man who made her pregnant. A man with heart trouble dies after trying to put out a fire. Another lies gravely ill but recovers.
