Philip Pullman answers a question on the shocking title of his new book. Filmed at the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford on 28 March 2010.

Phillip Pullman has a book titled The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ. Below is a video where a member of an audience points out that Christians may find that offensive.

Short video, but he makes a lot of good points. My favourite: "No one has the right to live without being shocked."
