Jacob T. Marley - Deseret Book Review
In the beginning of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol you read, "Marley was dead...to begin with." But...what really happened to Scrooge's old partner, Jacob T. Marley? Why was he allowed to come back and haunt Scrooge? Even more so, why was he so concerned that Scrooge meet a fate that was more pleasant than being weighed down eternally by chains of sin?
In R. William Bennett's book, Jacob T. Marley he gives you Jacob's story, from his happy childhood to his miserable adulthood...and beyond. Running parallel to A Christmas Carol you can enjoy an understanding of perhaps why Marley made such condemning choices in life...and witness his chance for redemptive choices in the after-life.
If you love the seasonal classic A Christmas Carol, you will enjoy this story! Jacob T. Marley is sold through Deseret Book and retails for $16.19. Pick up your copy today! Oh, and it would make a GREAT Christmas gift! :)
