Title: 52 Little Lessons From A Christmas Carol
Author: Bob Welch
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Ages:Young Adult and Adult
Gold Medallion Award-winner Bob Welch crafts 52 nuggets of Bible-based wisdom from one of the most popular novels of all time, A CHRISTMAS CAROL.
Why you should read it:
I jumped at the chance to review this book because A CHRISTMAS CAROL is probably my all time favorite Christmas story. What's better than someone given the chance to turn their life around and redeem an otherwise worthless life through simple acts of kindness and charity?
The thing I liked most about Mr. Welch's book is that you don't have to be a Christian to learn from the 52 little lessons he lays out in his latest book. No matter what your religious beliefs, everyone can benefit from being a little kinder to one another. The world would be a better place if we all reached out a hand to lift one another up instead of stepping on each other in our pursuit of some elusive material gain.
Each chapter is short enough to be read in a small amount of time but the lasting effect of these thought provoking lessons will linger long after you put the book down. Charles Dickens might have written A CHRISTMAS CAROL a long time ago, but Bob Welch's latest book is showcasing this classic in a new way and everyone can benefit from these little life application lessons.
A great addition to any home library!
