Reza Aslan will be speaking in York on 26th March about his new book Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.
The talk is free and is being hosted by the Writers at York initiative at the York Medical Society.
You may recognise Aslan’s name from a clip which went viral last year, in which a Fox News presenter asked repeatedly why a Muslim would want to write a book about Jesus.
“My job as a scholar of religions with a PhD in the subject is to write about religions,” Aslan maintained, in response to the presenter’s persistent (and bizarre) line of questioning.
The talk promises to be a fascinating chance to hear Aslan’s own perspective on the argument of his book and the controversies it has generated. Not to be missed!
