Zealot Author Reza Aslan Reading at Powell's

Posted by Alison Hallett on Mon, Jul 29, 2013 at 9:44 AM

This video made the rounds over the weekend, of a Fox news anchor who can't wrap her head around the fact that Reza Aslan, who is Muslim, wrote a book about Jesus:

Aslan came across about as well as one could in the situation—it's clearly not the first time he's had to defend his credentials—but the worst part is that he hardly talked at all about the book itself. I heard him on Fresh Air a couple weeks ago and he had fascinating stuff to say about Jesus as a historical figure and about his own conversion from Islam to Christianity and back again. (Here's the transcript of that conversation.)

You can hear it for yourself tomorrow night: Reza will be at the downtown Powell's at 7:30 to read from Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.
