The study was well written and provided opportunity for good dialogue in the group. The study was good for those who have been in studies before and for those who may have been entering their first study. It encouraged us all to consider the blessings God has given us through others and to consider ways God has used us to make a difference for others. Highly recommend!

Used this book in a church led Advent study prior to Christmas. Read at home, then joined fellow church members to review & watch the film clips. Perfect for us, and it made you think about your own life experiences.

I just finished reading this book from cover to cover. I was curious to see if it was something I might want to do with my family or to lead a small group in. And the resounding answer is YES!! I am always appreciative when writers/creators intersect the secular life with the faith life and there is no better example of this than exploring the beloved IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. It was a joy to revisit this old classic but to also consider the meaning of it in a much deeper way.
