First published by Simon & Schuster in 1934 - a handsome, gift edition of Dickens's other Christmas classic. Charles Dickens wrote The Life of Our Lord for his children. He set it down for their eyes alone during the years 1846 to 1849, about the time he was completing David Copperfield. For eighty-five years the manuscript was read only by family, with the admonition that it should not be published while any child of Dickens lived. When Charles's youngest son died before the 1933 Christmas holiday, he left the manuscript to his survivors and permitted its publication. Thus, The Life of Our Lord went to press and became an immediate bestseller. In this little-known treasure, Dickens expresses his great faith and humility by retelling the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Just as it was a tradition in the Dickens family to read The Life of Our Lord each year, so will today's readers be inspired to make this beautiful volume an important part of their own celebrations.
