His dark material

14th May 2010 at 01:00

Philip Pullman's book The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ is written as if by a man in total darkness (Marks out of 10, TES Magazine, April 30).

I would suggest that this book should be named for what it is - blasphemy - and that Mr Pullman should be pitied for his ignorance and immaturity in penning such wild and offensive ideas in the name of education.
