Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Chicken Soup for the Christian Family Soul is the latest installment in the wildly popular "Chicken Soup" series. Each story in the collection is heartwarming; storytellers Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Jeffrey Hedquist, Dawn McKay, and Jackie Leigh manage to convey sweetness without being saccharine. Possibly the most touching tale concerns a Jewish woman and her husband who had been separated in World War II. Each was taken to the concentration camps believing that the other had escaped and was safe; each came out of the camps believing that the other had died. Through chance, each spotted a lace tablecloth that the woman had tatted and embroidered with her initials hanging in a church. This audiotape reminds believers of all faiths that kindness matters and that miracles and synchronicities occur daily. Libraries with large Christian, self-help, and inspiration collections will want this audiobook. Pam Kingsbury, Alabama Humanities Fdn., Florence

I laughed, I cried, and then I cried some more! All in a good feeling sort of way. I would recommend this book to anyone, no matter what their belief system is. It definitely will impact them in many different ways. There are memories that come flooding back as they relate to the stories told. It makes you want to make sure you take advantage of all that is good and positive that we miss day to day by being to caught up in ourselves! I loved the book.

Even though I am not Christian, and worshipped another religion, I was also moved by the touching stories and poems. The moment I looked at the title page, it showed me the true brightness of how a Christian soul was like. I loved its title page the best because it not only caught my interest, but shone the light of the kindred soul.

"Chicken Soup for the Christian Family Soul" is a touching book that made me remember and realize all the miracles God can perform and has done. While I was reading, I was in awe. Each story made me smile, and thank God for what he has done for these people. Letting them know in a way that makes it special to all the writers' of all the stories. It was very inspiring to read about real people who have experienced sadness, trials, and obstacles in their lives but still they kept their faith and got their own life miracle. I had several favorite stories but this is my favorite:

"A Miracle of Mermaids". Rhonda Gill's Husband, Ken had died nine months ago. Her 4 year old daughter, Desiree, was heartbroken over it. Desiree was a daddy's girl; she did everything with her father. Rhonda had moved in with her mother after Ken's death. On November 8, 1993, what would have been her dad's 29th birthday, Desiree asked her mom how she could send her daddy a card. Her Grandmother recommended buying a balloon, and tying the card to it. Desiree picked out a Little Mermaid Birthday balloon, and they tied the card, and a note to it, and let it go. Desiree insisted on the thought that her daddy was going to write back to her.

Wade MacKinnon, who lived in the rural area of Mermaid, Prince Edward Island, Canada, decided to go to Mermaid Lake. At the lake, he saw something floating around, behind the bushes. He picked it up and brought it home. It was a balloon with Mermaids on it. He opened the letter written in a little baggy. They read about Desiree's daddy, and what they did. To their astonishment, the balloon had traveled, from Oak, California to Canada in four days, nearly 5,000 Kilometers. The balloon had also landed in Mermaid Lake. Donna, Wade's wife, decided to write back to Desiree.

After reading almost every edition of the Chicken Soup series of books during the past 10 years, this one being my latest read, I wanted to comment on how wonderful and inspiring the collection of stories and books have been to me.

Chicken soup: the simple, all-natural, inexpensive, easy-to-digest, comfort food, ingested for physical ailments. The title of this series of books promises the same, for the soul/spirit of the reader. And it delivers. Sometimes I feel it contains much more than mere chicken soup, but an arsenal of potent antibotics.

Divided and organized into categories or chapters, each book has stories each person can relate to, written about real people who have overcome obstacles, inspired, learned, thus encouraging the reader to do the same.

With a steady bombardment of negative news, I feel the Chicken Soup series of books creates a much-needed balance of hope to the sometimes-ignored, silent spirit that dwells within us.

If you have not already discovered this series, do yourself a favor and find a book within your interest range or start from the beginning with the first book. These books also make a terrific gift for a friend.

The book "Chicken Soup for the Christian Family Soul" is a treasure to behold. The stories are stories of every day angelic intervention and were so enlightening to read about. As a Christian Author myself I found this book rewarding to read and will highly reccommend it to anyone that needs to feel the power of God in every day occurences and daily life. He is always with us and may answer us in ways we did not think possible and at times when are appropriate. Love all your books. Kudos for another winner.
