Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan (45/52)

I am an avowed atheist who is fascinated with faith. Aslan’s historical account of the man is compelling. It tells of a man who was a revolutionary in all forms of the word. Out of the many prophets of the time and the many men who claimed to be the son of God, Aslan attempts to understand why this one caught on and took on a life of its own. He challenges the biblical record and explores the nature of rhetoric within the Bible. Many great questions come out of it. However, it is not the view of a non-believer, but rather a meticulous historiographical look at what we know. Quite interesting.
