Our Phone Interview with Reza Aslan

Reza Aslan - God: A Human History is our phone interview with Reza Aslan on his latest book, God: A Human History put to picture, text and video. Dr. Aslan probes the ancient origins of humanity's spiritual impulse. Why and how did it arise? Why do we create God in our own image? Is there a link between religion and agriculture? Why did Christianity become and remain so popular? Is there a bridge between atheism and believers?

Dr. Aslan is an internationally renowned writer, commentator and scholar of religion, His books, including his #1 New York Times Bestseller, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, have been translated into dozens of languages around the world. He is also a recipient of the prestigious James Joyce Award. Produced by 11th Story.

All religions of the world have an unconscious impulse to think of God in human terms. What Christianity does is say God is literally a human being. That I think is enormously satisfying.  ➳ Reza Aslan
