The Atheist and the Archbishop

In today's Times there is an interesting interview with Philip Pullman about his new book about Jesus. I spotted his new book 'The good man Jesus and the scoundrel Christ' this week in a bookshop window. It struck me that it is much easier to re-write the story than to face its implications and also interesting to see that it all came from a challenge from Rowan Williams.

Also from today's Times the first reviews of the iPad and a really good one here.

Actually ordered this book today. Was so intrigued by all the reviews (all by atheists, I might add) that I felt I should read it and see what all the fuss is about. Pullman seems like an interesting guy, but he's possibly been given a way too easy ride. One might see a review on a blog quite soon.
