Review:

Reverend Frederick Buechner

author of "On the Road with the Archangel" and "Listening to Your Life"

Perhaps the most touching aspect of Charles Dickens's "The Life of Our Lord" is how in it he sets all his literary powers aside and tells the Gospel story in the simple, artless language of any father telling it to his children. It is not surprising, remembering his own troubled childhood as he was surely remembering it himself, that he sums up the Christian message by saying that it is to do good even to those who do evil to us and to be always gentle, merciful, and forgiving.
