“Wise and passionate” (The New York Times Book Review), religion scholar Reza Aslan is the no. 1 New York Times bestselling author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth. His other works include No god but God, a headlong dive into the complicated history of Islam that was a finalist for the Guardian First Book Award, and How to Win a Cosmic War, an incisive analysis of religion and the war on terror. A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Aslan is the founder of Aslan Media, an online journal for news and entertainment about the Middle East and the world. A chronicle of humanity’s drive to reconcile its spiritual beliefs, God draws a line from prehistoric religions to today’s interfaith connections.
