Book Review: A Christmas Carol

A Christmas CarolToday marks the last day of our Christmas themed book reviews. And what better book to end with than A Christmas Carol?

Ebeneezer Scrooge is a miserly old man who loves money, hates Christmas, and isn’t too fond of his fellow man. After a ghostly visit from his ex-business partner, Jacob Marley, Scrooge spends the night before Christmas being visited by the spirits of Christmas past, present and future. Each spirit teaches him things about himself and the world around him until Scrooge awakes Christmas morning a changed man.

I must confess that my preferred way of “reading” this story is not in book format. Each year at Christmas time we dig out the Focus on the Family Radio Theater presentation of the story. A Christmas Carol is probably my favorite traditional Christmas story.

As this year’s Christmas season comes to a close, remember the lesson Scrooge learned. In his own word,

I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.

    Both Mrs Czaplicki and I enjoy the story A Christmas Carol and watch it at this time of year. It is also our preferred Christmas story. We enjoy the 1936 version, now shown in color.

  2. Haven’t read the story in a long time, but the TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) TV station showed a musical Christian version that was really nice.
