This book was released on 2010-04-21 with total page 257 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A thought-provoking retelling of the Gospel story from an atheist perspective. Upon its hardcover publication, renowned author Philip Pullman’s The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ provoked heated debates and stirred a frenzy of controversy throughout the clerical and literary worlds alike with its bold retelling of the life of Jesus Christ. In this remarkable piece of fiction, famously atheistic author Philip Pullman challenges the events of the Gospels and puts forward his own compelling and plausible version of the life of Jesus. Written with unstinting authority, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ is a pithy, erudite, subtle, and powerful book by a beloved author, a text to be read and reread, studied and unpacked, much like the Good Book itself. “The erudite fantasy author, Philip Pullman, makes explicit his complaint against Christian dogma with [this] challenging deconstruction of the Gospels.” —Entertainment Weekly “Inspiring . . . Again and again, [Pullman] displays a marvelous sense of the elemental power of Jesus’s instructions and parables.” —The Washington Post

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Philip Pullman’s re-telling of the story of Jesus of Nazareth (The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ) is certainly an impressive achievement. ‘Time and again,’ says Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, ‘when Pullman offers his version of a familiar biblical saying or narrative, he achieves a pitch-perfect rendering in modern idiom, carrying something of the shock and compelling attraction of the original gospel text.’Pullman is clear that what Christians tell us about Jesus is just a story too. The life and teaching of a simple, inspiring, tragic Jewish rabbi was intentionally distorted and embellished, creating a self-serving religious institution with a bloated hierarchy of bishops and priests.In Philip Pullman’s Jesus the leading biblical scholar and theologian, Gerald O’Collins, looks calmly at the evidence. Can we know the truth about Jesus? Did the first followers of Jesus simply make up the story of his rising from the dead? Did Jesus claim a personal authority that put him on a par with the God? As he faced death and celebrated a final meal with his dearest friends, what did he mean by his words and actions?With The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ Philip Pullman issued a serious challenge to the reader to look again at the Gospels,and ask whether or not it is reasonable to believe what the New Testament and the Church teach about the founder of Christianity. In Philip Pullman’s Jesus Gerald O’Collins takes up that challenge with authority, passion and flair.

At once personal and wide-ranging, Daemon Voices is both a revelation of the writing mind and the methods of a great contemporary master, and a fascinating exploration of storytelling itself.

Book excerpt: “I Was a Rat!” So insists a scruffy boy named Roger. Maybe it’s true. But what is he now? A terrifying monster running wild in the sewers? The Daily Scourge is sure of it. A victim of “Rodent Delusion”? The hospital nurse says yes. A lucrative fairground freak? He is to Mr. Tapscrew. A champion wriggler and a budding thief? That’s what Billy thinks. Or just an ordinary small boy, though a little ratty in his habits? Only three people believe this version of the story. And it may take a royal intervention—and a bit of magic—to convince the rest of the world. Set against the backdrop of a Royal Wedding—and a playful parody of the press, I Was a Rat! is a magical weaving of humor, fairy tale, and adventure.

Accompanied by Juan, who may or may not be a real person, he travels toward the Second City, the capital of the Anderson Valley Project, where he is sure he will find his wife. Once in the City he comes in contact with the Electric Whores, an astrologer who is also a werewolf, a deranged midget who serves as a judge, and a sweet-smelling angelic messenger—each revealing an aspect of this oddly distorted corporate society"--Goodreads website.
