Zealot

Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth
by Reza Aslan

Well written, evocative and a compelling arguments that brings to life a real person instead of the comic book figure who dominates our society. Just as interesting is the war for control and defining the church after Jesus’s death.
