2.0 out of 5 stars Philip the wannabe Christian?, 11 July 2008
By 
This review is from: Killing the Imposter God: Philip Pullman's Spiritual Imagination in His Dark Materials (Paperback)
The authors are Christians who love the Dark Materials trilogy, and presumably to make themselves feel less guilty about liking something written by an avowed atheist, seem to have collaborated to convince themselves (and us) that Pullman is really a closet believer, on a par with the so-called "death of God" theologians. These are the fellows who want us to reject the old fashioned, strict and bad tempered Patriarch who sits on a cloud and asks his followers to prove themselves by murdering people, and replace him with a more modern divinity, a kind of nebulous warm and woolly comfort blanket.

Thus the authors have their own agenda and if, like me, you find it slightly irritating when religious people find it impossible to accept that you can lead a happy/moral/ethical/fulfilling life without a belief in either a god or an afterlife, you might find this book irritating too.
