Dickens and religion: A tale of two views

(RNS) "It is Christianity to be gentle, merciful, and forgiving, and to keep those qualities quiet in our own hearts, and never make a boast of them, or of our prayers or of our love of God, but always to show that we love Him by humbly trying to do right in everything." -- Charles Dickens, The Life of Our Lord
