Excellent Testimonial from Charles Dickens

This is an excellent book for teaching children, ourselves, or anyone who wants to know about Christ in simple terms. My wife gave a copy to each of our married children.

Another Dickens Masterpiece!

I never knew of this book's existence until a friend of mine, a fellow book lover, told me about it. What I love most about the book is that Dickens wrote it for his children--not for the public at large. How many fathers would write a book just for their children? Dickens seems like such a tender hearted person. And you can sense that there is a lot of love put into this book. It's nice to have the gospel of the Savior unfold in such a smooth narrative, in a language that is closer to modern English than the language of the King James Bible. Of course, Dickens fills in a few gaps, and puts his own spin on things--but all in all he is very faithfull to the four gospels. I am thankful to my friend for telling me about this wonderful book! Other great holiday reads: Christmas Gifts, Christmas Voices--a story that is both gut wrenching and (thankfully) heartwarming. Finding Noel: A Novel--yet another marvelous Evans book!

Dickens as a dad

This is a wonderful summary of the Gospels by Charles Dickens. Basically he tells the story with a few of his own instructive comments inserted for the benefit of his children's benefit. It was never pulished in his lifetime and he never really intended for it to be published and in part because of this it is quite different from his other works. It is a easy and quick read (very different for his other works). The reader is also given great insight into the character of Charles Dickens particularly his love for the Savior and his children. The work is both touching and warm hearted.

A father's timeless gift

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 He made the provision that it was not to be published until much later.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.

A tender treasure

This slight book is Charles Dickens' written interpertation of the Gospels, a gift ment for his children. It was only to be published after his death. In the retelling of Christ's life Dickens gives his children the most precious gift...his testimony. This is a treasure of a book,a witness to the beliefs Dickens held dear.
