The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ (Canongate Myths #16) The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ is a novel by Philip Pullman. Published at Easter 2010 by Canongate Books, it tells the story of Jesus as if he were two people, "Jesus" and "Christ," with contrasting personalities; Jesus being a moral and godly man, and his brother Christ a calculating figure who wishes to use Jesus' legacy to found a powerful Church. The book has attracted controversy, as well as hate mail sent to Pullman by Christian fundamentalists threatening him with damnation. Pullman's historical understanding has been criticised by Professor Gerald O'Collins. Diarmaid MacCulloch reviewed the book positively for Literary Review.
