I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Gerald this summer at Dickens Universe. He is a very nice man and a great actor; he performed "Doctor Marigold" and gave it life and pathos.

I've also read Dr. Colledge's excellent book; anyone who wants to know about Dickens's religious beliefs should read his thoughtful presentation.

I would love to see the result of their collaboration...

I also had the opportunity to see Gerald's performance at the Dickens Universe this past summer and agree completely that it was an absolutely amazing performance!

I'm interested in learning more about Dickens' religious beliefs and am wondering where to start. For anyone who has read Dr. Colledge's book, would this be a good introduction to the topic, od should I begin with something else? (And if so, any recommendations?)Thanks!

Hi Natalie! Dr. Colledge's book is an excellent introduction to the subject. It's very well researched and very readable. (His previous book on Dickens's religious beliefs was an academic one, but "God and Charles Dickens" is written for a general audience.)
