Book Review: 52 LITTLE LESSONS FROM A CHRISTMAS CAROL, by Bob Welch

Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with a new review, and this time its  52 LITTLE LESSONS FROM A CHRISTMAS CAROL, by Bob Welch.  In this book, Mr. Welch makes us think of being humble, of caring for others hurts and pains, and what really should matter. Lesson 47 in this book was by far my favorite and one that everyone should read. Remember our story is rooted in the past!

This books speaks to the true, lasting trials and tribulations of Ebenezer Scrooge. He is both a hero and an anti-hero, and though he isn’t the best role model throughout the story, he has so much to teach us. Author Bob Welch has compiled his painstaking research into Dickens’ world into this little book that takes readers on a tour of the important lessons from A Christmas Carol, showing us that this isn’t just a simple Christmas story.

Scrooge’s story is one of redemption, mercy, and deliverance. As our literature group looks at the elements of character, Scrooge himself reveals an immense picture of misery, fear, bitterness, loneliness, denial, regret–and hope. Scrooge’s journey is an example that God’s grace is never-ending, and it is never too late to change.

  • Lesson 16: Life is best lived when you’re awake
  • Lesson 18: Showing trumps telling
  • Lesson 23: The past can be empowering
  • Lesson 32: Death is a comma, not a period

The short chapters in 52 Little Lessons from A Christmas Carol each tackle a deeper lesson from the story that Welch expands on beautifully with specific details from Dickens’ classic, making this book an easy resource to teach from.

I recommend this beautiful book highly. It has wonderful lessons that each one of could use in our daily lives.

I received this book free from Book look Bloggers for and honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s.
