The Jesus Paradox

Two new books -- one by a Roman Catholic journalist, the other by an atheist novelist -- offer modern responses to the difficult concept that Jesus was both mortal and divine.

Two new books offer modern responses to the Christian paradox that Jesus is thought of as both mortal and divine. Paul Johnson, a Roman Catholic journalist, focuses his biography on the earthly life of Jesus, assuming most of the stories of the bible to be true. Atheist novelist Philip Pullman takes a different tack, retelling the Gospel story with Mary having not one child, but twins — one called Jesus and the other Christ.
