This is a very little known work by Charles Dickens which he wrote privately for his own children. It remained unpublished, under the terms of his will, until 1934 and has had a very limited circulation since. This edition is a faithful rendering of Dickenss manuscript and for the first time is comprehensively illustrated with traditional colored New Testament scenes which perfectly complement the text. This is a rare and enchanting work by one of the worlds greatest writers made available for a new generation.
- Publisher

First published in 1934, this simple narrative, written by Dickens for his children, expresses the author's great faith and humility by retelling the story of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

Meet the Author

Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens, perhaps the best British novelist of the Victorian era, was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England in 1812. His happy early childhood was interrupted when his father was sent to debtors' prison, and young Dickens had to go to work in a factory at age twelve. Later, he took jobs as an office boy and journalist before publishing essays and stories in the 1830s. His first novel, The Pickwick Papers, made him a famous and popular author at the age of twenty-five. Subsequent works were published serially in periodicals and cemented his reputation as a master of colorful characterization, and as a harsh critic of social evils and corrupt institutions. His many books include Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Great Expectations, A Christmas Carol, and A Tale of Two Cities. Dickens married Catherine Hogarth in 1836, and the couple had nine children before separating in 1858 when he began a long affair with Ellen Ternan, a young actress. Despite the scandal, Dickens remained a public figure, appearing often to read his fiction. He died in 1870, leaving his final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, unfinished.
