Item description for The Life of Our Lord by Charles Dickens...

Charles Dickens--perhaps the best loved of all English novelists--here, in his own unique style, brings to life the gospel account of Jesus. This--the last work of Dickens to be published--is a beautiful retelling of the familiar Bible story. Originally handwritten by Dickens for his own children this inspiring account was created in order that they might know more of the book Dickens called "the best that ever was or will be known in the world." The work remained, at the authors request, unpublished for eighty-five years. Dickens no doubt refused to permit publication because it was such a personal communication to his own children, and he did not want his deepest religious convictions to be subjected to public discussions. After the death of Dickens youngest child in 1933, publication was permitted and the work appeared in newspaper serialization and later in book form. It is now part of the rare books collection of the Free Library of Philadelphia. This charming, nostalgic work includes illustrations of pages from the original manuscript, a portrait of Dickens children, and engravings of Biblical scenes in a style often used in family Bibles during Dickens time. Definitely a work to be cherished. The Life of Our Lord is one book certain to be read again and again.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Life of Our Lord?

A father's timeless gift  Aug 15, 2000
This slender volume is Charles Dickens' written interpertation on the four Gospels. He made the provision that it was not to be published until much later. It is a father's testimony of the truth of the things he held dear. A real treasure.
