Charles Dickens, For His Children

“My dear children, I am very anxious that you should know something about the history of Jesus Christ. For everybody ought to know about him. No one ever lived who was so good, so kind, so gentle, and so sorry for all people who did wrong, or were in any way ill or miserable, as he was” (Charles Dickens, “The Life of Our Lord,” written for his children during the years 1846-1849).
