Zealot: Reza Aslan and Sam Harris on Twitter

On 8 August in the UK Reza Aslan’s book “Zealot” looking at the historical Jesus of Nazareth is out. Much publicity was generated by the infamous Fox News interview above which basically kept asking why would a Muslim want to write about Jesus?

Sam Harris suggested that competence was not the thing but credibility in the argument.

Sam here about Reza:


Many tweets later, Reza agreeing with another tweeter user delivered a rebuke to Sam.



Having watched the interview interested in reading the book. On twitter starting a virtual book club do use the hashtag #razbc (Reza Aslan Zealot Book Club) as I imagine #zealot will be more difficult to follow each other on.
