About the Authors.
Jason King is assistant professor of theology at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. He has been teaching college for eight years and loves his interactions with students and colleagues.
“Freitas and King clearly know their material and have the requisite passion for their topic.” —Publisher's Weekly
“In Donna Freitas and Jason King's creative, compelling reading, Pullman emerges not as the atheist he always said he was, but as an unwitting witness to a divine force that longs to be with creation. It will not only change how you read Pullman—it may change how you think about your own story, too.”--Lauren F. Winner, author, Girl Meets God
