Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth

Zealot is a lucid, intelligent page-turner about ‘the historical Jesus.’ It’s a portrait of the violent and changing times he lived in.” Los Angeles Times

Renowned author and religious scholar Reza Aslan
(No god but God) rocketed into the spotlight when he appeared recently in a controversial Fox News interview. His “compulsively readable” (Publishers Weekly) book, Zealot, presents a provocative new take on one of history’s most influential and enigmatic figures. Challenging long-held assumptions, Aslan examines Jesus through the lens of the tumultuous era in which he lived, re-envisioning the man as a politically conscious revolutionary.
