Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ is the remarkable new piece of fiction from best-selling and famously atheistic author Philip Pullman. By challenging the events of the gospels, Pullman puts forward his own compelling and plausible version of the life of Jesus, and in so doing, does what all great books do: makes the reader ask questions.

In Pullmana (TM)s own words, a oeThe story I tell comes out of the tension within the dual nature of Jesus Christ, but what I do with it is my responsibility alone. Parts of it read like a novel, parts like history, and parts like a fairy tale; I wanted it to be like that because it is, among other things, a story about how stories become stories.a

Written with unstinting authority, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ is a pithy, erudite, subtle, and powerful book by a controversial and beloved author.

a oeAfter drawing the ire of religious conservatives with his young adult book trilogy His Dark Materials, the author Philip Pullman is again taking on potentially controversial subject matter. His next novel is to be a fictionalized account of the life of Jesus that will differ from the version presented in the New Testament.a a Dave Itzkoff, The New York Times
