Steve Burt, a clergyman from Connecticut, here serves up a collection of the Christmas stories which he has produced annually for a number of years.  Set mostly in New England, but ranging as far as Europe in WWI, they depict small acts of faith and simple human kindness which give the commonplace an aspect of the miraculous.  They range from genuinely moving to endearingly hokey, but are all so good-natured and heartfelt that it's impossible not to be touched by them.  The book will particularly appeal to churchgoers and seem like they'd be ideal for reading aloud at Christmas services, but they are universal enough that anyone can enjoy them.


Grade: (B-)
