" This is nice. It's pretty much Dickens repeating several stories from the Gospels in a way his children would understand, adding some commentary. I think he embellishes on a couple aspects - he seems to think that Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany (Martha and Lazarus's sister) are the same person - but there's nothing heretical that I could find. " said.

" https://nwhyte.livejournal.com/3071012.htmlA not terribly remarkable re-telling of the Gospels for children, mainly interesting because, in line with the author’s wishes, it was not published until after the last of his children had died, 64 years after Dickens’ death and almost 90 years after it was first written. Readers will be interested to learn that Sunday was the Jewish sabbath, along with other helpful observations. " said.

" I'm so glad I read this during the Christmas season, to remember the true meaning- Christ and all he went through for us. " said.

" I have always wanted to read this, my favorite author impressed me again. I was touched by his desire to share his testimony with his family. Such a beautiful testimony of Christ. " said.

" Love reading this with my children. Such a sweet reminder to share my testimony of our Savior with my own children. " said.

"This isn't a book I thought I would ever see because I've never heard of it before, but I came across it and thought I'd give it a shot.
It was charming to think that Dickens was reading this to me, as there are spots where it's clear he's adding personal inflections and addendums for the sake of his children, rather than straight from the Bible. I always respected the man for reflecting what I believe to be true Christian values, so I saw the book as endearing, even if I'm no longer "God-fearing" myself.
" said.

" I liked that this was a quick review of Jesus's life, and imagining Dickens reading it to his children every Christmas made it much better. " said.

" I loved this book. I found it at a library book sale about thirty years ago, when I was still in college. I kept it for many years. Then, I donated it so someone else could discover Charles Dickens and/or Jesus Christ. " said.
