The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future come alive at this time of year when Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” is seen again in multiple film, television and stage versions, and the book once again becomes traditional family reading.  What is it about this timeless tale that still resonates today?

Cheryl Kincaid, the author of the book “Hearing the Gospel through Charles Dickens’s ‘Christmas Carol’ can tell you. 

Kincaid has spent hundreds of hours researching Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol” and host Burke Allen will ask her about:

-The origins of the beloved Dickens holiday classic

-Why Dickens story of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the ghost of Jacob Marley is still so popular over a century after its release. 

-The biblical roots of “A Christmas  Carol”; was Dickens actually a believer?

-The best (and worst) adaptations of “A Christmas Carol” 

Ms. Kincaid, the pastor of Clifton New Jersey Presbyterian Church, will also answer listeners questions about Charles Dickens and his impact on the way we celebrate Christmas today.
