Today I am joined by Bob Welch. Bob is an award winning author, columnist, speaker, and professor of journalism at the University of Oregon. Bob is the author of seventeen books including the recently released 52 Little Lessons from A Christmas Carol that explores lessons and stories from Charles Dickens’ beloved novel A Christmas Carol.
Although a century and a half after its publication, the familiar story of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and innocent Tiny Tim remains popular and continues to reach millions of people. But Dickens wanted his story to do more than entertain- he wanted it to teach lessons about forgiveness, redemption, and faith. Welch’s book peals back some of the layers on this classic tale offering insights and implications for how to live in a spirit of love and forgiveness.
In today’s podcast we will talk with Bob about the Christmas Carol, what motivated Charles Dickens to write it, and what lessons can be learned from Ebenezer Scrooge.
