Compiled and Introduced by Jon M. Sweeney


Charles Dickens could be satirical, ironic, and skeptical when it came to describing religious faith in his stories, yet he was one of the few great novelists of any era who was thoroughly immersed in the Bible. 

This book is the perfect gift for fans of Dickens' work, as well as those who have yet to discover some of his writings, and will serve as a welcome resource for those seeking a way to reignite their prayer life.

Jon M. Sweeney has written more than 20 books. Seven of those are about Francis of Assisi including When Saint Francis Saved the Church and The Complete Francis of Assisi. HBO has optioned the film rights to Jon’s bestseller, The Pope Who Quit. He lives in Montpelier, Vermont and all of his earnings from this book will be given to the homeless there.
