Book Review - 52 Little Lessons from It's a Wonderful Life
Do you pay a visit to Bedford Falls every Christmas? Does December feel incomplete without a reminder that “no man is a failure who has friends”? If George and Mary Bailey are annual guests at your home during the holidays, you already know that It’s A Wonderful Life is far more than just a festive seasonal film. It’s a reflection of what we can be when we’re at our best and a reminder that our lives can change everyone around us—for better or worse. Revisit the defining lessons in Frank Capra’s 1946 classic, and discover new dimensions of the film you’ve seen time and again. What can you learn from Mary’s quiet contentedness? Does George’s selflessness make you rethink your own priorities? And how about Clarence’s dogged commitment to his assignment? Join author Bob Welch for a close-up of the characters and themes that shape this beautiful story. You’ll be reminded that life’s most important work is often the work we never planned to do and that God can use the most unlikely among us to get the job done.
My Take on the Book
I have always loved this movie, and this book takes my understanding of the lessons found in the movie to the next level. The author did an admirable job at putting together a list of the great messages that the movie shares as well as how this relates to each and every one of us on a daily basis. So no longer do you need to worry about waiting until Christmas to see this movie again, but instead you can relive the movie and the messages held within it on a daily basis. The principles were practical and easy to understand and by reading this through even once you can make substantial changes to your life that will impact you for the long haul. There is so much that one can learn from this book, I highly recommend that you pick it up today!
