Product description


"Pullman at his very best" (Guardian)

"A supreme storyteller . . . Pullman has done the story a service by reminding us of its extraordinary power to provoke and disturb" (Daily Telegraph)

"A fierce and beautiful book which . . . will move even those who disagree with it" (Observer)

"It is a small gem or, given its explosive story and its exquisite artistry, a hand grenade made by Fabergé" (Sunday Times)

"Beautifully written, humane, memorable and resonant" (Philip Hensher)

"Beautifully effective . . . Pullman's retelling of the central story in western civilisation provides a brilliant new interpretation that is also a thought-provoking reflection on the process of how stories come into existence and accrue their meanings" (Nick Rennison Sunday Times)

"The charm of this book lies in its seriousness about the story it tells, and about its being a story" (London Review of Books)

"A writer of great skill and feeling" (Adam Gopnik New Yorker)

"Provokingly bold . . . striking and suggestive" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"Pullman nimbly presents this as a contrast between historical veracity and the bon mot that can take root in the popular imagination. He implies that Christ's true achievement was to put a spin on Jesus's story, adding elements of mystery and poetry to an otherwise prosaic tale" (James Urquhart Financial Times)

Book Description

The number one Sunday Times bestseller from award-winning and critically acclaimed author Philip Pullman
