The Life of Our Lord
I am reading The Life of Our Lord by Charles Dickens which he wrote and read only to his family. Gerald Charles Dickens writes in the introduction-"My great-great-grandfather wrote The Life of Our Lord for a very special reason-he wrote it for his family. He wanted his children to learn about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in as plain and simple a way as possible, and he decided the best way to achieve that was to write it himself and give to his family as a gift." "...Read it as an honorary family member and draw from it the rich meaning that Charles Dickens intended when he first presented this gift to us."
