Item description for The Christmas Child: A Story of Coming Home by Max Lucado...

"Over here," the old man called, as I stood in the doorway. He led me down a long hall to a room at the back of the sanctuary. In the corner, a stand held a thick scrapbook. He turned a few pages and pointed to a yellowed newspaper clipping pasted to the page. "What's this all about?" I asked the old man. "Finish the article, and I'll get us some coffee," he said, disappearing into the hall. Why would someone steal a doll from a manger scene? I wondered. And what could this possibly have to do with me? The Christmas Child, a touching tale by Max Lucado, is the basis for The Christmas Child motion picture starring William R. Moses, Megan Follows and Stephen Curtis Chapman. A family classic.

Publishers Description
The Christmas Classic, Max Lucado's Christmas Cross, is newly repackaged and redesigned, and ties in with a major movie release. A Chicago journalist finds himself in a small Texas town on Christmas Eve. Lonely, he encounters old faces and new facts...a hand carved manger, a father's guilt, a young girl's faith. The trip into the past holds his key to the future, and a scarlet cross shows him the way home. In the movie, the main character, Jack, is played by William Moses (of 'Perry Mason' and 'Falcon Crest'). His wife, Meg, is played by Megan Follows (of 'Anne of Green Gables'). The movie also features Steven Curtis Chapman as the town's minister.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Christmas Child: A Story of Coming Home?

A bit long, but very good.  Apr 19, 2007
Max Lucado may not be the best theologian out there, but when it comes to turning out a heart-warming story he knows how to hit the mark. Another great book by Lucado on Christmas.
Healing for the soul  Jan 1, 2005
This book was purchased as a Christmas gift, but of course, I had to read it to make sure it was a good book. I loved the story and cover. It was a soul touching story about a man that found the grandfather he had never known. The miracle of the whole situation was uplifting. I love small, beautiful coffee table books and this is now on MY coffee table, along with three others I had purchased to give as gifts. I just couldn't part with it. It moved me. If you love stories about miracles at Christmas, you need to purchase this book.
Comfort and Joy  Feb 26, 2004
Entertaining, comforting and joyous. Leaves the reader feeling good.
Read With A Kleenex Handy  Nov 15, 2003
Max Lucado's THE CHRISTMAS CHILD is a retelling of an earlier work, THE CHRISTMAS CROSS which is now out of print. The new edition is illustrated with photographs from a movie version of the work

If we look at what works and does not work in fiction, THE CHRISTMAS CHILD should not work. It is sappy, sentimental, and predictable. One of these characteristic in a book meant for an adult can work, two of these characteristics would be a maybe at best; all three would be fatal flaws for a book. Yet this work has all three characteristics and all three work together rather well. When a person reads this story about redemption and forgiveness, it is easy to be moved to tears. Lucado has a gift at touching the heart through his writing, and in doing so teaches the essential message of Christianity. The author of this little volume understands the miracle of the Christmas story, but knows that human nature has been weekend by sin, an ever present reality even at Christmas, and that the true miracle of Christmas is the redemption offered through the child born in a manger. Lucado demonstrates this through two very human people: a Chicago journalist who has been having marital problems and a church maintenance worker who has known great tragedy through mistakes he has caused.

Some could call THE CHRISTMAS CHILD a CRIPPLED LAMB or JACOB'S GIFT (two Lucado books intended for children) for adults. To put this work in the same category as THE CRIPPLED LAMB and JACOB'S GIFT is a compliment. All three works move the heart and retell the wonderful story of Christmas and how the Christmas message applies to our lives all through the year.
