Publishers Description One long-ago Christmas, Earl Gibson lost the two things most precious to him: his wife and daughter. Angry and heartbroken, he ended up living on the streets and abandoned any belief he'd once had in God. Ten years later Big Earl meets Gideon, a seven-year-old leukemia patient who believes with all her heart that "Christmas means never having to ask God how much he loves us." Gideon is determined to reach this lonely and hurting man who hates Christmas--and he is just as determined to rebuff her. It will take a miracle for Earl to come to understand the true meaning of Christmas. But if he can accept what Gideon wants to give him, he might find that he can return the favor with a precious gift of his own. In GIDEON'S GIFT, Karen Kingsbury reminds us that Christmas is still a time of miraculous possibilities if only we reach out to those around us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gideon's Gift (Repack) (Red Glove Series V1)?
Gideon's Gift Jan 13, 2007
An excellent book depicting faith, compassion, life's true values and God's master plan.The characters are real and can be identified by all. Becoming discouraged and giving up is a tendency we all have. THis is a "can't put down" book.
Beautifully written, heartwarming story Dec 26, 2006
Oh wow. I have no words to describe this story and how it touched my heart. I read the last quarter of it through tear-filled eyes.
I am going to have both of my daughter's read it because I can't think of another story that exemplifies the true spirit of Christmas as powerfully as this one does.
I'll always remember that Christmas miracles happen to those who believe. And I happen to have a pair of red gloves that were given to me by a friend that won't let me forget.
Gideon's Gift; A Novel Nov 3, 2006
This book arrived in better shape than expected it to. This was my first time for ordering books from the internet and I was real impressed. It was also shipped very quickly and wrapped really good for shipping.
one of the best Jan 30, 2006
I love this series...the red glove series. They are all good and they are so easy to read. Each one is a heartwarming story. I hope she does more red glove stories in the future.
For Young or Old Sep 12, 2005
I listened to this book read on audio while driving to Colorado with my brother. We both enjoyed the story. The book is a good story which both young and old can enjoy and can learn from. Karen Kingsbury is a good author who holds your attention to the very end. The ending of this book is positive and leaves you with feelings of hope.
