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
The Christmas Candle
I love Christian movies because they are Christian movies. However, this story is so compelling I think I would love it even if it was secular. The music fits well, grabs your attention, the scenery is beautiful, the actors for the most part were experienced and therefore, very good. I enjoyed the story and the way it was presented, starting with the history and then fast-forwarding to modern time and there was more than one story running through it. It just makes you pause and think and I identified with many of the characters as far as how I believe and how my faith works itself out. All in all, very good film. It should be a classic, in my opinion.
