Sunday School & Sermon Series: December 3,10,17, 24

Charles Dickens’s classic novel, A Christmas Carol, is a story of brokenness and redemption. The beginning of the story is dark—the book opens with the words “Marley was dead.” We soon meet Marley, former partner of the main character Ebenezer Scrooge, as a ghost. Marley’s ghost promises Scrooge that a trio of ghosts will be visiting him, and the reader is to presume that none of the visits will be pleasant. Scrooge begins the story as an unrepentant miser whose greed has caused harm to himself and others and ends with him a changed—a redeemed—man.

Just as Christ brings light and hope to a world in darkness, the events of A Christmas Carol shine light into the darkness surrounding Scrooge’s life, ultimately leading him to embrace the hope, peace, joy, and love we associate with Christmas.

In The Redemption of Scrooge, author and pastor Matt Rawle examines Dickens’ classic novel, making connections between the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and the story that Christians tell during Advent and Christmas.

Using historical information, archaeological data, and a personal look at some of the stories surrounding the birth, the most amazing moment in history will become more real and heart-felt as you walk along this road.
