9781847678263: The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ

Part novel, part history, part fairytale, "The Good Man Jesus" offers a radical new take on the myths and the mysteries of the Gospels, and the genesis of church that has so shaped the course of the last two millennia. With all the magic for which Pullman's storytelling is famed, this provocative and thoughtful new book from one of Britain's best loved writers promises to be the highest profile yet in Canongate's acclaimed "Myths Series".

A supreme storyteller . . . Pullman has done the story a service by reminding us of its extraordinary power to provoke and disturb. --Sally Vickers, Telegraph

A small gem or, given its explosive story and exquisite artistry, a hand grenade made by Faberge. --Bryan Appelyard, Sunday Times

Clever and thought-provoking. --Sue Arnold, The Guardian

Magnificent . . . Five hundred years ago Pullman would have been burnt at the stake as a heratic. Now his ideas merely set the debate alight. --Nigel Nelson, Church of England Newspaper

The Gospel according to Pullman, precisely because it is so skilfully constructed, will prompt many readers to turn once more to consider whether or not they should accept the apparently bizarre testimony of the early Christian witnesses.
--A. N. Wilson, Literary Review
