Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan

Aslan looks at Jesus as a historical figure more so than a religious one. However, it’s impossible to completely ignore that major aspect of Jesus’ character. Having been brought up Catholic, this book illuminated how the Virgin birth, the cleansing of the Jewish temple, the relationship with John the Baptist, and the crucifixion most likely differed factually with what is told in the Bible. And I came to better understand the schism between Judaism and Christianity.
