During the last week I have heard some noise regarding another “real Jesus” book “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth” by Reza Asla.
This week on Catholic Answers I heard a caller ask Jimmy Akin about it and he couldn’t say anything about it since he hadn’t read it. Now though since he has read it now he has posted 14 things you need to know about the new book Zealot.
Jimmy Akin critique goes beyond some of the complaints I have heard about the author of the book and how the book has been presented in the media. In fact those complaints are really not warranted and it is the scholarship (or lack of) in the book that is where the problems lie.
