So I know anyone with an internet connection can invent a quote and stick a name next to it. I came across this quote recently and was a little skeptical. I found numerous references but none with context or citation.
But if they are authentic, I'd be interested to know the context.
The following quote was attributed to Charles Dickens:
“The New Testament is the very best book that ever was or ever will be known in the world.”
But I'd be interested to know if anyone knows any more about them. It struck me as odd because I can't imagine Dickens not knowing the difference between a book and a collection of books, nor not knowing that the language of the Bible is decidedly common.
