Just the Facts

December 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm

For their December book, “Just the Facts” Nonfiction Book Discussion Group will be reading Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan. Two thousand years ago, an itinerant Jewish preacher and miracle worker walked across Galilee, gathering followers to establish what he called the “Kingdom of God.” The revolutionary movement he launched was so threatening to the established order that he was captured, tortured, and executed as a state criminal. Within decades, his followers would call him God. Balancing the Jesus of the Gospels against historical record, Aslan describes the many contradictions of the story of Jesus. We will discuss this book on Thursday, December 16 at 6:30 pm.
