Like the original Chicken Soup for the Christian Soul, this second volume celebrates wholesome, traditional values and principles. Themes of forgiveness, faith, hope, charity and love will lift readers' spirits and warm their hearts. The stories in this collection will deepen readers' faith and expand their awareness of how to practice Christian values in their daily lives--at home, at work and in the community.

This book will remind readers of the miracles they can discover when they welcome Christ into their everyday lives. Powerful stories will deepen readers' compassion for others, inspire them to greater acts of charity, lead them to forgive others and themselves, encourage them to stand up for what they believe in, and, most of all, remind them that they are never alone or without hope--no matter how challenging and painful their circumstances may seem.
