    Yes. He is 64 years old.

    This year he published a book called 'The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ'. It's a retelling of the Jesus story, told in simple language, but it's very subversive. For instance, when Mary and Joseph go to Bethlehem and have to sleep in the stable, Mary gives birth to twins.

    He is currently writing another book set in the 'His Dark Materials' universe. He has been writing it for a long time, he describes it as a 'big book', and it's called 'The Book of Dust'.

    You misunderstood. The "god" that grew to become into going to be killed wasn't truthfully god, it grew to become into the 1st angel who appointed himself god. the actual god isnt killable interior the story thus far as pullman revealed.
