 My Thoughts

This book ended up being way better than I expected. Bob Welch is gifted in writing short yet to the point "lessons" that tie A Christmas Carol in with Biblical standards. I agreed with a lot of the thing written, such as the love of things and money, which is obviously something Scrooge has a problem with, is also in the Bible. I would say you need to know the story line of A Christmas Carol to fully enjoy this book. He does a quick reminder bit at the beginning of the book, but I still recommend reading the book by Dickens. 
One of my favorite parts is when Bob writes about how the holiday season brings out he best in people. Everyone seems to be kinds etc. Then afterward, it seems as if now the holidays are over we can go back to being grumps. He talks about how really silly this is and how we really need to be like this all year. There were a lot of great points made in this book and I highly recommend!

Five stars.
