Publisher's Summary

Here are more than 60 heartwarming stories of faith. These are stories about the true gifts of Christmas: answered prayers, real-life angels, and inexplicable miracles. They are the stories of people who gained a greater understanding of the true meaning of Christmas, some through a word or gesture from their fellow man, others through a miraculous event that could only have come from God.
The writings are drawn from the archives of Guideposts magazine and complemented by selections from Pearl S. Buck, Billy Graham, Catherine Marshall, and more.

You Get What You Pay For

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

More solidly written stories without the irksome need for feel-good endings. I really liked the Pearl Buck story and the one that took place at the outbreak of WWII but most of them had predictable outcomes or hammy lines.


Has Stories of Faith for Christmas turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I got it for cheap. I just wanted something to get me in the mood for Christmas. usually nothing does that like a good story but most of these were just too cheesy for me. It's just a matter of taste, I guess.
I prefer stories that emphasize the joy of giving and the surprise in the recipient not corny Christmas Miracles. There is but one Christmas Miracle and that's good enough for me. Stories like Christmas Day in the Morning (renamed here something corny like A Gift to Last a Lifetime) which show the simple but true way we can all make Christmas special by doing something just as ordinary as someone else's chores.
God gave us something much more beautiful just by letting a young girl give birth in a stable. The man getting locked in a safe and having no one notice was a nice wake-up call and the citizens who had come to a cheap California apartment all chipping together to help a young pregnant woman was a nice affirmation of American as well as true Christian values.

- Thomas "I like Irish and Swedish crime thrillers and sociological exposes concerning African American life from Colonial times to the end of WWII. Recently I have taken a real liking to the works of Neal Stephenson and Fyodor Dostoevsky as well."
