Book reading and lecture: Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan


Bestselling author Reza Aslan will discuss his book Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth. Aslan is one of the foremost contemporary scholars of religion — particular Islam, which he has written about extensively. In the controversial book, he turns his eye toward Christianity, examining with great detail and vigorous research the life of Jesus. Taking a historical approach rather than a spiritual one, Aslan's book paints a portrait of the Roman Empire in which Jesus existed — a world in which Jesus was not only a prophet but also a great troublemaker who shook the foundation of his society and gave birth to one of the world's most enduring religions.
