Product Description

As he was finishing the highly renowned David Copperfield, Charles Dickens was also working on a labor of love, handwritten for his children, from 1846 to 1849. The Life of Our Lord is a charming, simple retelling of the life of Jesus Christ, adapted from the Gospel of St. Luke. He wrote it exclusively to teach his young children about religion and faith, and refused to allow it to be published while any of his children were alive. So it passed from family member to family member for 85 years as a precious family secret. When Sir Henry Fielding Dickens died in 1933, he left his father's manuscript and the right to make the decision to publish the manuscript to his wife and children. By majority vote, Sir Henry's widow and children decided to publish the book.
Unabridged audio CD; 2 CDs; read by David Aikman.

Publisher's Description

"I am very anxious that you should know something about the History of Jesus Christ. For everybody ought to know about Him. No one ever lived who was so good, so kind, so gentle, and so sorry for all people who did wrong, or were in any way ill or miserable, as He was.”  Charles Dickens wrote The Life of Our Lord around the same time he was finishing up David Copperfield, but to listeners raised on a diet of Dickensian wit and indignation, his rendering of Jesus' life may come as something of a surprise. You won't find even the shadow of a Micawber or a Mrs. Gamp anywhere in this brief volume; no Pecksniffs, Podsnaps, or Mulberries, either. Instead, Dickens approaches his subject with simple reverence, retelling the New Testament in a manner suitable for his own young children – who were, in fact, his only intended audience. Indeed, he strictly forbade publication of The Life of Our Lord during his lifetime and begged his sister to make sure that they "would never even hand the manuscript, or a copy of it, to anyone to take out of the house." It wasn't until the death of Dickens's last living son that the manuscript was finally published in 1934.
