52 Little Lessons From A Christmas Carol by: Bob Welch (Book Review)


Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Book Look Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.

52 Little Lessons From A Christmas Carol is the perfect title for this book because it literally is 52 little lessons from this classic and beloved Christmas story.  All of these lessons incorporate how we can live our lives not only at Christmas, but throughout the whole year.  The book offers real life examples of how to apply these lessons to our lives, along with scripture and Biblical references.  There is also a brief summary at the beginning of the book describing the book, A Christmas Carol by: Charles Dickens, and throughout the book are mention of the over 20 films based on A Christmas Carol. 

The author refers to A Christmas Carol and Scrooge, as a "redemption story."  I thought how beautiful and true that is.  Here is a man who was so lost in his love of money that he didn't even recognize the world around him, other than to criticize or be cruel.  He is lead through his past, present and future if he does not change.  The author does an amazing job of going in chorological order of the story so it like is reliving this classic in a new way. 

I very much enjoyed reading this book.  It was fascinating to see what Dickens' was trying to convey and how the author shows you this.  I would highly recommend reading this book, especially with Christmas not too far away.  It has you reexamine yourself through the eyes of many of the characters and how you can live your life better.  I would recommend this book for high school students and older not because it was a hard book to read, but because many of the concepts written would go over a child's head.

Thanks for stopping by to read my review. If you would like to find out more about this book or the author, please click here.
