This is the immortal Christmas classic by Charles Dickens! First published in 1843, A Christmas Carol was an instant success, winning both critical acclaim and great public attention. This story is credited with restoring the Christmas holiday in Great Britain and America, making the public recognition of the birth of Jesus Christ the most celebrated holiday in Western Civilization. This work was that important! But A Christmas Carol is important today as well! It reminds us of the Christian virtues of faith, hope, and charity. And it reminds us of the central meaning of the Christmas season, that being, God loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to redeem us. He changed evil men and women, and continues to do so today, through the quickening small voice of His Spirit, and demonstrates the life-changing power of His presence in our lives! This is the importance of this book, and the reason why it should be read annually during this most important holiday season. This work is that important! Hal Moroz, from the Introduction.
Charles Dickens is considered the greatest novelist of the Victorian Era. Born in Portsmouth, England, in 1812, he created many of the world's most memorable fictional characters, several of whom appear in this book. Charles left school at an early age to support his family, following his father's incarceration in debtor's prison. This no doubt influenced his emphasis on charity toward the poor and those in debt, particularly noticeable in this work. He died in 1870 at the age of 58. His lasting legacy can be found in the many literary, stage, and screen adaptations of his works, even to the present day. * Hal Moroz is an Attorney & Counselor at Law, having represented clients up to and including the United States Supreme Court.
