As the latest in their Sunday Morning Seminar Series the Presbyterian Church in Morristown is hosting internationally acclaimed writer and scholar of religions, Dr. Reza Aslan, Sept. 22.
Aslan will be appearing at the Parish House Education Center, 65 South Street to discuss his latest book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.
According to the seminar organizers, Aslan will present a bold and fresh view of Jesus through the lens of
tumultuous first century Palestine, when scores of Jewish prophets,
preachers and would-be messiahs traveled through the Holy Land.
Aslan will offer a brief introduction with a question and answer session until 10:15 a.m., followed by a book-signing opportunity for those who bring their personal copy of his book from 10:15-11:00 a.m.
Aslan is the founder of AslanMedia.com, an online journal for news and
entertainment about the Middle East and the world. His first book,
international bestseller No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam, was named one of the 100 most important books of the last decade. His current book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,
spent several weeks as the #1 work of nonfiction on the New York Times
best seller list.
