The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ…

on February 2, 2012

…a brilliant book by Philip Pullman.

I read it in a weekend, couldn’t stop once I’d started. We all know the story of Jesus but do we know the story of Christ?! He took a well known story and gave it just enough of a slant to keep you turning the pages. I like books that challenge authority because all too often power does unfortunately corrupt. It was a good read, although I was bitterly disappointed with the ending, I wanted more.
