The Testament of Gideon Mack Learning Resources

The Testament of Gideon Mack is a hugely readable and gripping book which poses challenging questions about belief and truth. The possibilities for discussion arising from the book are hugely exciting: it will give your pupils a chance to explore questions which are on the minds of every human being at one time or another.

Part of the enormous appeal of the book is the space it gives the reader to form their own conclusions about the events within. Author James Robertson has gone as far as to admit that even he can't know the real truth about what happens in the book: hear more of what James has to say in this video interview
