The good man Jesus and scoundrel Christ

by P. Pullman

Thanks my friend LoT for always reminding me to read the books by Pullman.

I know it is quite some work to herd cats, and I wouldn’t try even if you paid me to. But for those of who like reading, this is an interesting read.

Pullman tells of the circumstance of Jesus and Christ’s birth, their growing up and their differences as children

I like the conversation at the poolside.

And the prayer of Jesus is out of this world. Part of the prayer, which most of us would agree with

‘Lord, if I thought you were listening, I’d pray for this above all: that any church set up in your name should remain poor, and powerless, and modest. That it should wield no authority except that of love. That it should never cast anyone out. That it should own no property and make no laws. That it should not condemn, but only forgive.

Go read the book. You will love it, that you can trust me.
