Oh, dear readers! A lesson is here for you. To judge a book in the first few words is a mistake. God's words which I have quoted from this book appear a little way into this loving Christian father's summary of the story of our Savior's message and life which he intended not for the public, but for the discussion and education of his own children. Dickens understood the meaning of those lessons and that life better than most people. He lived and wrote his books always with that in mind. You would be doing yourselves and your beautiful children a service by reading any of his writings to them....A Christmas Story is a good place to start. It is the tale of the salvation of a lost soul by the spirit of Christ as represented by the example of good people who love that holy day. Dickens was a man, not a saint, and may have had opinions about that great message that differ slightly from your own-which gives you an opportunity to think about your own faith and to discuss the differences among the beliefs of different Christians. We have been given one commandment by Jesus, which is that we love one another, and I love you, dear reader, as my Master demands.

What would have made The Life of Our Lord better?
We stopped listening at "there is a child born today in the city of Bethlehem near here who will grow up to be so good that God will love him as his own son."
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
No, bad theology is bad.
