Sincere Sweetness 6 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is so different from Dicken's other works. It is a simple, but beautiful testimony of faith written by a father to young children. It is a book that we hope to make part of our family Christmas traditions and one that anyone who loves Christmas will treasure.

Spiritual Side of a Genius 12 novembre 2001
Par Kendal B. Hunter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"[A Christmas Carol] is Dickens's widely acclaimed masterpiece of Christmas. But his The Life of Our Lord, written in a very personal way, without adornment or flights of fancy, and written for the children he loved, carries with it not only a beautiful narrative but a compelling admonition: 'Remember!--It is Christianity TO DO GOOD always--even to those who do evil to us.'"
"Such is the simple telling of a beloved author. In his time and during the generations that have followed, his great novels have been read by millions upon millions. But his story of Jesus' life, written with Dickens's own pen, and without editing of any kind, was for 85 years a family treasure and secret. Printed with all of the editorial mistakes of the original writing, it has delighted many others beyond his family."
President Hinckley, Ensign, December 1994
I have heard Pres. Hinckley, world leader of the Church of JEsus Christ of Latter-day Saints, talk about this book, and believing that there is some merit in reading the same books that the president of the Church reads, I picked it up.
This book may be considered a follow-up to his immortal classic "A Christmas Carol," where, instead of an allegory dealing with three spirits working on the Scrooge-of-all-Scrooges, he retells the story of the life of our Lord.
The book was geared for his children, so it is a quite easy read. Having read "A Tale of Two Cities," "Hard Times," and "A Christmas Carol," I was impressed with Dickens's flexibility. In fact, it is almost as if we are reading a transcript of a fireside chat. So this book is very readable for anyone of any age. It would be an ideal gift for a child between five and ten years old, or helpful to someone with a learning/reading disability. You could conceivably kill two Goliaths with one stone: get them familiar with the life of the Savior AND expose them to great literature!
The only drawback with the book is the theology, but that is understandable since we are of different faiths. Dickens focuses mainly on the ethical aspects of Christ's life, which is good, but incomplete. Another presdeint of the Church of Jesus Christ, President Howard W. Hunter, once gave a talk called, "Ethics Alone is not Sufficient." If you remember in "A Christmas Carol," Scrooge makes a conversion to ethical ideal, but not a conversion to Christ. He is going in the right direction, but not far enough. But it is a great book nonetheless.
The cover is stellar! It looks as important as its contents. The internal organizing and lay are also up to the stature of the author. It is nice to see that books are returning to their former glory of being both functional and beautiful. It would makes a great gift book, or a beautiful addition to any Postum table.
This book had been submerged for a long time due to Dickens's desire to keep his beliefs uncommercialized. I am glad that his estate has published this book, so we see the complete man.

Another Dickens Masterpiece! 8 décembre 2007
Par Mary W. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
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!

The Life of Our Lord : Written for His Children During the Years 1846 to 1849 27 septembre 2005
Par C. Hovey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I liked it because you can tell that it wasn't proofed and edited before printing. It gave me an insight to Charles Dickens that I had not had before. It would be best not to sit down to "read" the book in one setting. Really enjoyed it.

Dickens as a dad 31 août 2001
Par Blah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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.
