Dr. Reza Aslan is a scholar of religion who was raised Muslim, spent time as an evangelical Christian, and is today once more a follower of Islam. His experiences as both a Christian and a Muslim have given him a rare perspective on religion. He joins Welton on State of Belief this week to discuss his compelling new book, Zealot: the Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth and the lessons we can draw from the historical figure of Jesus, no matter our faith tradition. Dr. Aslan is an internationally acclaimed, best-selling writer, the founder of AslanMedia.com, an online journal for news about the Middle East and the world, and is a creative writing professor at the University of California, Riverside. CLICK HERE FOR EXTENDED INTERVIEW VIDEO AND TRANSCRIPT
