Description

Internationally bestselling author and Mideast expert Reza Aslan (No god but God) sheds new light on one of history’s most enigmatic figures, Jesus of Nazareth, through the lens of the first century, when scores of Jewish prophets, preachers and would-be messiahs wandered the Holy Land, bearing messages from God. Aslan explores why the early Christian church preferred to promulgate an image of Jesus as a peaceful spiritual teacher rather than a politically-conscious revolutionary.
