Listen to Reza Aslan discuss his new book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth:
Reza Aslan’s new book Zealot probably would have caused a stir even without the help of Fox News. But the now-infamous interview in which a Fox anchor questioned Aslan’s credentials to write about the historical Jesus simply because Aslan is a Muslim certainly helped propel the book into the national spotlight. In this appearance at Politics & Prose, Aslan discusses the difference between viewing Jesus of Nazareth through the lenses of history and faith.
