    Story
    (1186)

    From the internationally bestselling author of No god but God comes a fascinating, provocative, and meticulously researched biography that challenges long-held assumptions about the man we know as Jesus of Nazareth. Sifting through centuries of mythmaking, Reza Aslan sheds new light on one of history's most influential and enigmatic characters by examining Jesus through the lens of the tumultuous era in which he lived: first-century Palestine, an age awash in apocalyptic fervor.

    Charles says: "Palastinian Politics 4 B.C.E. - 70 C.E."
    "This is a best seller???"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book is not told for a wide audience. Other scholars of religion might find it interesting.


    What was most disappointing about Reza Aslan’s story?

    Even though Aslan tells us there really is limited proof for the jesus of the bible. For the entire book he continued to quote the bible and started to analyze the Bible and it wasn't remotely interesting. He also said he was going to give alternative views on the subject but never did.


    What aspect of Reza Aslan’s performance would you have changed?

    He makes interesting points about the historic jesus and the time which he lived. But he never referenced anything directly other than the bible. He constant tells us the bible isn't factual over and over . He never adds anything else. The book should have been shorter.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    He paints a picture on the specific time that Jesus lived and all the other messiahs that came before him.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a complete waste of time. Not thought-provoking at all.
