Item Description...
A TREASURY OF OLD-FASHIONED CHRISTMAS STORIES Each Christmas, bookstores have displayed stacks and stacks of new Christmas books. Since this is so, why then should we come out with an eighth Christmas in My Heart? Good question! After all, are these books different from most of the others? Dr. Wheeler has been asked that question by media interviews over and over, and this has been his standard response: "I feel strongly that life is too short for me to waste my time reading stories that don't take me somewhere, don't do anything for me, don't make me a kinder, more loving, more empathetic person. Most Christmas stories are Santa Clausy and seem rather sterile to me. In order to make it into one of my Christmas collections, a story must be Christ-centered in terms of values, and it must speak to my heart, move me deeply, force me to reach for my Kleenex box. It is this heart-tugging quotient, I submit, that has kept this series alive for eight years now." Stories in this book include: The Beloved House, Christmas in the Heart, A Pint of Judgment, Special Delivery, plus 10 more. Few things are harder to do than to follow up a successful book with another successful book. I remembered how impressed I was by certain performing artists I worked with during the 10 years I directed a concert-stage Lyceum series. When I would ask them which of their many concerts they considered to be their best ever, invariably the artist would turn to me and say, 'This one, tonight's, is going to be my greatest concert!' I have never forgotten that lesson. So it is that when I reread the manuscript for Christmas in My Heart, book 8, comparing the stories all the while with those in previous collections, at the end I leaned back and sighed happily: 'It's as fine a collection as we've ever done!' I hope you agree.-Joe L. Wheeler

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Continued Satisfaction with this Series  Mar 6, 2008
Through the years I have collected all of the Christmas in My Heart Volumes (except I have not been able to locate Volume 4--keeping my eyes open). This Volume as with the others is simply delightful. If you enjoy traditional and current inspiring, family oriented, uplifting wholesome stories you cannot go wrong with any of the Christmas in My Heart Books. They are a nice break from the hectic pace of today's world. Joe Wheeler does an excellent job of gathering and selecting the stories and the stories he writes himself are wonderful also. If you are an avid reader, you will enjoy these books but if you only have small bits of time for reading, it is nice they have the short story format. Enjoy!!
Christmas in My Heart  Jan 10, 2007
I bought this book as a gift for a friend, but took a peek inside before I mailed it. It's wonderful! Heartwarming, touching, lovely stories that point your heart toward the true meaning of the season...I loved it.
Great as a gift or for your own family  Feb 20, 2000
My daughter has been going to sleep to the sound of these stories (we have all the volumes) for several years now. She listens to them year round, not just at Christmastime.

One of the reasons they last so long, is that she is usually asleep before the end of the story!

A Great Read for Christmas  Dec 4, 1999
I have read several of the "Christmas In My Heart" Collections and find each worthwhile. While the stories are sentimental, they do remind the reader of the true meaning of Christmas. The stories vary in diversity, which is a great asset to this collection. Some are quite "old-fashioned" (19th century/early 20th century stories), while others are more recent. Some can be shared with small children, while others would greatly appeal to adults ("Meditation in a Minor Key" is my personal favorite). Reading this collection (or any of the other volumes)is a great way to unwind after a day spend shopping. The colleciton is a reminder of what our true focus should be on Christmas.
A worthwhile Read  Dec 4, 1999
I have read a few of the "Christmas In My Heart" Books, and I find each one worthwhile. Although the stories are very sentimental, Christmas, more than any other time of year, is a sentimental season. Probably the greatest asset of this collection (and the other volumes)is the diversity of the stories. The stories range from ones that can be shared with small children ("Small Things") to ones adults would enjoy ("Pandora's Books" in this volume and "Meditation in a Minor Key" in volume 1). While most of the stories are quite old (19th century/early 20th), there are also more recent ones ("Matthew, Mark, Luke,and John" - post Korean War). Each story is deeply moving and refocuses the reader's attention from the hassle of shopping and writing cards to the true meaning of Christmas. The stories are inspirational and heart warming.
