Quick Overview:

Bob Welch takes us deeper into the nuances of Frank Capra’s 1946 tribute to bedrock values.

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. From the lightheartedness of George and Mary’s floor-parting dance to the poignancy of a community that rallies to save a desperate man, 52 Little Lessons from It’s a Wonderful Life will inspire you to live for the deeper stuff that, as George Bailey finds, matters most.

Review by Denise
Overall Rating
In reading this book - it reflects on different parts of the movie that makes you realize how important the small stuff is.

How you don't have to be a bit shot to make a difference. God works through everyone - even those most unlikely.

I like how he delves into specific situations and comes up with great thought inspiring ideas.

There are not many books that I keep in my small book collection. Once I have read a book I generally pass it on. But this one is a keeper. That is how good it is in my opinion (Posted on 9/12/2012)
