The Christian, A Story, is a book by British novelist Thomas Henry Hall Caine, first published in 1897. Set in the late nineteenth century, the book follows clergyman John Storm who is doing mission work in the slums of London when he meets a girl from the country called Glory. After getting to know her, he sees it as his mission to dissuade her from seeking a career on the stage, something she has been urged to do by Lord Robert Ure, who is not too happy that Storm is meddling in his business. The author enjoyed huge popularity during his lifetime and The Christian was the first British novel to sell a million copies. The book was adapted into a play and two films.

This book has 367 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1897.
