This review is from: Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth (Kindle Edition)
Being interested in theology it was a breath of fresh air to read someone taking the angle of a critical view on the times of when it was said Christ was on Earth. I found this book well written and engrossing, though perhaps light and quite nonchalant in describing the history of destroyed civilisations. However what this only touches on I suppose can be researched elsewhere. Aslan's research definitely highlighted some fascinating facts which bring a twist to the myth and brought some new food for thought in approaching the study of Jesus.
