Shabby Journalism (Zealot: The Life And Times Of Jesus Of Nazareth)

Dr Reza Aslan is clearly a an excellent scholar  and researcher, and shows admirable patience and restraint under some fairly aggressive and ill-informed questioning from the interviewer. It's obvious that the interviewer, Lauren Green, hadn't read any of Dr Aslan's book, reverting instead to several fairly irrelevant and mis-informed quotes, and repeatedly trying to create her own story around why a Muslim should have written a book about Christianity rather than focussing on the scholarly credentials and academic research that went into the book. Perhaps Dt Aslan should have asked his interrogator whether a book on the life of Jesus would be more relevant and accurate if it had been produced by an uneducated Christian?

Shame on Fox news for some pretty shabby journalism.

  1. Have you read it, Steve? Is it worth having a house group discussion about it?


Do you have something to say?
