I’m really excited about this week’s Left, Right and You, dear listeners, because best selling author Reza Aslan will be joining us for a full half-hour!
Aslan, of course, is the author of the best selling book, “Zealot: The Life and Time of Jesus of Nazareth,” one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. It paints a vivid picture of what life was like at that time in one of the poorest areas of the world, how Jesus stood out from a group of folks who claimed they were the Messiah, and how this simple peasant took on divine overtones.
We’ll discuss the book, Aslan’s own religious background, attacks on the book from folks who didn’t even bother to read it, how the real Jesus of Nazareth might approach some of today’s more contentious issues, and what Aslan plans on publishing next.
So please join us Thursday on WRMN AM1410 from 3 to 4 p.m. because it’s gonna be good!
