    This is not my typical kind of book. I usually go for the supernatural stuff, but these books were part of Amazon's "Daily Deal" at a great price do I decided to go for it. I loved these stories, they were heartwarming and taught me some valuable lessons. I bought another Chicken Soup book that I'm looking forward to reading next. This is not my typical kind of book.

    I liked this book. It was interesting to see through the eyes of people with different religious backgrounds than I, and realize they're not really different at all. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, it is comforting and strengthening to know that God helps all of His children who love and remember Him. The evidence that God is real is alive in all of these people and their stories!! :) I liked this book.

    This book is a set of short stories best for a bed time read. This book is nothing about religion but more about application of Christian values to an everyday life. The stories belong to different topics such as hope, miracles and death. And a few stories are even life changing. They will surely change your perspective towards the things in life. Sure a must read for every Christian.

    Loved the stories, however most of them rarely had anything to do with Christianity in itself. But all together, great stories.

    My copy of this is actually from 1997 although the photo above is of the updated 2012 edition. A lot of the stories took place many years before the book was published so you can tell the stories are a little outdated but hey were still inspiring. For some reason, the second half of the book was better than the first. I just resonated with the stories, or enjoyed them more I guess. As with all CSS (Chicken Soup for the Soul) books the stories are broken up into categories.

As with all CSS (Chicken Soup for the Soul) books the stories are broken up into categories. In this case they are: On Love, On Giving, On Parents and Parenting, On Faith, On the Lighter Side, On Death and Dying, A Matter of Perspective and Overcoming Obstacles. The story that moved me the most was Thank You, Miss Evridge from the On Faith category. It’s a story of thanks to a teacher from junior high. The author lost contact with the teacher and wasn’t able to send the thank you letter to her so he shared with us. This resonated with me because I wrote a thank you letter to a guidance counsellor I had in high school. I had a rough 4 years and I saw the counsellor daily, sometimes a few times a day, pretty much every day. She was very helpful and never seemed tired of me. I didn’t know how to contact her though so I never got to give her the letter directly. The book makes a great bathroom reader as you can read 1 or a few stories, depending on how long you are. It’s like a little faith pick me up throughout your day!

    3.5 stars (rating seen may vary depending on whether the site allows half star ratings) I've read other Chicken Soup books in the past, though not recently. I thought I'd read this before, and yes, a few of the stories did seem familiar, but many did not, so I must have read a different book from the series. There are so many stories (101 according to the cover of my copy) that almost everyone should find at least one story that they like or one story that touches them.

    Chicken Soup for the Christian Soul has great motivational and amazing stories about God and the impact he has made on other people's lives. Some of the stories that I read were really beautiful and talked about God's miracles and merciful love. Reading Chicken Soup for the Christian Soul made me feel very encouraged and hopeful, and I would definitely recommend it!

    I loved this! All of the short stories were so moving and touching. It was really great to see so many stories about other people who have a belief in God. My favorite section of the book was the 4th section on faith. That was good.

    I can't imagine the time it takes to put one of these chicken soup for the soul books. There are many theme's, something for everyone and I have never really put a thought to actually reading one. This book was a gift from a friend and so I felt like it would honor our friendship to read the gift before passing it on to someone else. This was a wonderful book on faith, hardships, love and pure miracles of God. My own faith grows stronger with these tales and I found the pages quickly turning.

    I felt a lot of stories would have touched me more, if the writer hadn't made them so ridiculously over-sentimental. This wasn't true for all of them, but some of them, while the intention was clearly to have me in tears, instead just made me roll my eyes. A lot of them weren't particularly Christian - someone just happened to mention God at some point. They were largely very nice, and quite uplifting, but I don't feel they've really inspired me on my Christian walk, or anything.

    The book was amazing... It had several heart-warming stories that everyone can connect to at a personal level. I also loved how the book explores several themes such as faith, love, overcoming obstacles, etc instead of just focusing on a single topic... The book is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who reads it, with its optimistic take on life. Kudos to all those who worked hard to present such a beautiful book to the whole world!!

    Not exactly my kind of book, mostly since I'm not the religious type. Still I found this book interesting! I got to see the live story of people with different religion and cultural backgrounds, how they solved their problems, be thankful for their graces, et cetera. These stories are comforting and heartwarming. To put simply, reading this book will 'keep your faith in humanity in check.' Thanks to my ex-girlfriend back then in high school for this gift. I still keep the copy until today. Not exactly my kind of book, mostly since I'm not the religious type. Still I found this book interesting!

    This book always strengthen me when I feel lost in life. I learned some life stuffs through the contributors' experience. Some stories make me laugh, some stories start me to cry, some stories build regret in my heart, and some stories encourage me to re-think about my life. Good!

    Some of these stories are priceless ... many very inspirational, lots of tear jerkers. Really good reading for evening devotions, or for light quick stories ... just make sure you've got time for a few tears (and also lots of smiles!)

    This book was great. Makes a great "bathroom" book. No matter your faith the stories will touch you one way or another. Some were very inspiring. Great work can't wait to pick up my next Chicken Soup book. This book was great. Makes a great "bathroom" book. No matter your faith the stories will touch you one way or another.
