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.
