Reviews for Zealot:
“Riveting . . . Aslan synthesizes Scripture and scholarship to create an original account.” The New Yorker
“Aslan’s insistence on human and historical actuality turns out to be far more interesting than dogmatic theology. . . . This tough-minded, deeply political book does full justice to the real Jesus, and honors him in the process.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Aslan brings a fine popular style, shorn of all jargon, to bear on the presentation of Jesus of Nazareth. . . He isn’t interested in attacking religion or even the church, much less in comparing Christianity unfavorably to another religion. . . . You don’t have to lose your religion to learn much that’s vitally germane to its history from Aslan’s absorbing, reader-friendly book.” Booklist
