This is a story.
In this ingenious and spellbinding retelling of the life of Jesus, Philip Pullman revisits the most influential story ever told.
Charged with mystery, compassion and enormous power, "The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ" throws fresh light on who Jesus was and asks the listener questions that will continue to reverberate long after the final word is spoken. For above all, this audiobook is about how stories become stories.
In his new novel, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Pullman, the noted atheist and author of the His Dark Materials trilogy, imagines Jesus as a preacher propped up by his ambitious, less moral twin, Christ. More at NPR.org
