Aslan's book is tame and inconsequential

Reader comment on item: Islamism's Likely Doom
in response to reader comment: Reza Aslan is he a liar?

Mr Aslan's book is actually very tame, considering the spectrum of opinions on New Testament historicity. Perhaps Aslan, being a Muslim, thinks he is being provocative because he would never dare to say the same about Muhummad, but most of his observations are actually mainstream or banal.

If you want a really provocative account of the discovery of the real historical Jesus, you should read 'Jesus, the King of Edessa'.
