Description - The Good Man Jesus And The Scoundrel Christ by Philip Pullman
In this ingenious and spellbinding retelling of the life of Jesus, Philip Pullman reimagines the most influential story ever told. Charged with mystery, compassion and great power, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ says something new about who Jesus was and asks questions that will resonate long after the book has been read. The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ is subversive, thought-provoking and deeply moving. Pullman's storytelling genius shows just why the charismatic person of a spontaneous, articulate Jesus has captured the hearts and minds of so many. Right to the end the betrayal of Jesus retains the intensity and suspense of high drama. As does the identity of Jesus Christ. The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ could change the way you think about religion, about God, and about one of the most enduring stories of all time.
