Introduction

This is a free study guide for A Christmas Carol written by Charles Dickens. Scholar Michael Patrick Hearn, in The Annotated Christmas Carol (1976; New York: Norton, 2004), notes that Dickens was a Unitarian. Unitarian Christianity, in Dickens' day, focused more on morality and ethics than on traditional theology. Dickens wrote in one of his letters, "I have always striven in my writings to express the veneration for the life and lessons of our Savior . . ." (Hearn, p. 143). While silent here regarding the traditional claim of Jesus' full divinity, Dickens clearly feels passionately about Jesus' full humanity.
