Deep in the heart of the English countryside lies the enchanting village of Gladbury. Legend has it every twenty-five years an angel visits the village candlemaker and touches a single candle. Whoever lights this candle and prays before it receives a miracle on Christmas Eve, but in 1890, at the dawn of the electric age, this centuries old legend may come to an end. When David Richmond, a progressive young minister, arrives in Gladbury, the villagers discover a new formula for miracles: good deeds and acts of kindness. While David's quest to modernize Gladbury sets him at odds with the old world candlemaker, he finds an unlikely ally in the lovely skeptic, Emily Barstow. Now, the fiery candlemaker must fight to preserve the legacy of the Christmas Candle, but when the blessed candle goes missing, the miraculous and human collide in the most astonishing Christmas the village of Gladbury has ever seen.Written by

I sweet, simple enjoyable Christmas film with a message of faith and hope. Beautifully filmed, with a lovely score, I think the film's weakness was a script that did not fully take advantage of the beautiful story of faith and prayer by Max Lucado. Still, "The Christmas Candle" is well worth your time with its message of miracles and faith. That said, I am saddened to see the effort to attack this film because of its Christian themes and because it is produced by Rick Santorum. Unfortunately, it seems that the secular progressives here will savage any film that dares present God/Jesus Christ in a positive light and will somehow find a way to work in pointless, ad hominem attacks against, of all things, the Tea Party into a movie review. Still, if you go see this film, you may find it in your heart to love those who find the need to attack people (and films) of faith and pray that, someday, they too will bathe in the healing light of "The Christmas Candle."
