My Review...

5 Star Rating

I really love this Christmastime devotional. At the start of each chapter, I got to read a short snippet of A Christmas Carol (which was perfect, because it's been a while since I've read Dickens' book), which is then followed by the author's spiritual-based commentary on the passage. Truly, this is a unique way to bring to light lots of hidden messages in Dickens' holiday classic. We get to dig deep into these characters, like Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, and discover more than what's on the surface of the story.

Annie Tipton backs up all of her devotionals with biblical scripture. This book really led me to think about A Christmas Carol in a whole new way by spotlighting some interesting topics and finding hidden meanings behind many of the words and actions said and done in A Christmas Carol.

There are many lessons about life to be found in this holiday devotional. I definitely recommend it! (Hey, it even makes a great Christmas gift.)

Re-learning a piece of classic literature in this way makes my literary-inclined heart pitter-patter.

God Bless Us Every One! is available on Amazon in hardcover, e-book format.
