Reader recommendation: Zealot

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

Zealot by Reza Aslan differentiates the Jesus of faith from the historical Jesus of Nazareth. This book gives insight into why we have Christianity today and what kind of Christianity. I have been in search of the true story for decades and this book, well researched, gives me new insight. I enjoyed it.
