--My Overstuffed Bookshelf

Online Reviews

"If you're looking for a beautiful rendering of the classic this edition would be a nice addition to your library. The paperback format makes it an excellent option for group or classroom study as well."
--Book Em Benjo

"Having never read A Christmas Carol I found it interesting. No matter which adaptation of it you've watched on television or in the movies you'll find it interesting to read the original that started it all. The book is full of explanations about the story that are very interesting."
--Mom Knows it All

"My review of this book is being done well before Christmas because I hope that churches will order many of these wonderful little books and use them in their classes and small group discussion groups. . . . I was delighted to discover the value of the notes written by Stephen Skelton. They offered great insight into the history behind this classic. I learned things from these notes that I would never have known without much study on my own. The list of related resources to enhance your study are also of great value."
--Musings of a Minister

"We love Christmas stories in my house. (Who doesn't?!) One of my favorite Christmas stories is A Christmas Carol, the ultimate classic Christmas story. We thoroughly 
enjoyed reading this book and enjoyed the added appeal of being able to discuss this book as a family, and use our Christian values to do so. This is a great book for any Christian family who also loves great Christmas classics!"
--A Simple Kinda Life

"This book has given me a better understanding of the story, it's author and the ways that the book relates to Christian values. I liked that the notes give you insight into the spiritual meanings and also define some of the words that were used from the original text. The discussion sections at the end of each chapter help to relate the story to your life and allow you to more deeply reflect on the spiritual lessons that it has to offer. This book would make a great addition to any families library and would be perfect for book clubs."
--Starry Eyed Surprise

"I enjoyed reading A Christmas Carol in Charles Dickens' own words and appreciated the accompanying commentary since many of the expressions from 1843 are unfamiliar to the modern day reader. I recommend this book for family or any small group as a short, light and fun book study during the holiday season."
--Bella Online Christian Living 

"Really, you could spend the entire month of December, or several weeks around Christmas, immersed in the beautiful language, vivid, heartrending story, and Biblical wisdom of this inspiring combination of classic literature and practical Bible study. I heartily recommend it for your consideration."
--Bella Online Bible Basics 

"This is what makes this such a nice edition to share as a family. I think this book would make a great read, especially for those family going out  this holiday season to see the new Disney version of A Christmas Carol in theatres."
--Princess and the Monkey  

"This book gives you a better understanding of the story. I liked all the insight into the spiritual meaning of the story that the notes give you. The discussion sections at the end of each chapter help you relate this story to your life and allows you to reflect on the spiritual lessons that it has to offer. This book would be great for families to read and discuss together. This Special Edition Version would make be a great book group discussion especially for Religion Education classes."
--Shawn's Sharings

"The book is a great resource for many who want to expand their knowledge of this period in time and of God's Word."
--Reading Frenzy

"Well, this book adds tidbits of information along the way. From historical facts to biblical references, there is something for every taste and it does not detract in any way from the book! BONUS for those with book clubs or study groups . . . between each Stave (or section, chapter, whatever you'd prefer to call it) there are discussion guides with questions to spark conversation. Pretty cool, huh?"
--Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers

"I received this lovely edition of 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens in the mail and was surprised to find so many interesting things, that never occurred to me inside. This is a special edition, with Christian insights by Stephen Skelton."
--Joe Mama
"As a Catholic who loves this story, this special edition reveals the spiritual depth of Dickens and was fascinating for me to read. The added footnotes explain the lessons of Christ that are woven among the Christmas scenes."
