Description

Never published in its author's lifetime and intended solely for his own children, to whom he read it every Christmas, "The Life of Our Lord" is an accessible and gently humorous take on the life of Jesus Christ and his teachings. Far removed from the sharp satire and social dimension of his more famous writings, but showcasing his characteristic humanity and genius for storytelling, this is both an essential work for those wanting to see a different, more intimate side to Dickens' prose and a timeless retelling for children and adults alike.show more
