Abstract: Charles Dickens' The Life of Our Lord, largely a simplification of parts of the four Gospels and the Book of Acts, was written for his children as an integral part of their Christian and moral education. He never published the manuscript or gave the text a formal title. In the more than sixty years since its initial publication, the book has appeared in over forty editions worldwide. Not one, however, has been designed to recapture the spirit of the manuscript's original and, prior to Dickens' death, implemented value as a primer for nondenominational Christian moral education.
