Avowed atheist and best-selling author Philip Pullman is known for writing Northern Lights, which was adapted for the silver screen and rebranded The Golden Compass. The atheist undertones in the story sent evangelicals into a frenzy. Pullman's latest book, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, has been shrouded in far more controversy. This fictionalized retelling of the gospels is the tale of twin brothers, Jesus and Christ, the latter of which is cold, calculating, and manipulative. Pullman uses the charismatic Jesus character to deal the church low blows and criticism. Host Bill Hogg is joined by regular panelist Peter T. Chattaway and newcomer Michael Horner for this rousing edition of The Kindlings.
