“Zealot” by Reza Aslan

A new Jesus book is making the rounds, Zealot by Reza Aslan. Reviewer John Dickerson notes that media people who interview Aslan about the book fail to mention his Muslim faith. His other book No God but God looks like a clue to that.

I haven’t read the book, but from the reviews it looks like yet another treatment of Jesus as a revolutionary–one of the various Jesuses people find when they try to look behind the Gospels instead of at the Gospels.

UPDATE 21 Jan 2014: Here’s a review of Aslan’s book by Robert Gundry.
