The Evil in the Zealot
Reza Aslan’s new book Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth has become a bestseller thanks to a horrendous interview on Fox News that went viral. We talk about what the book claims about Jesus, and how Christians can respond to misguided views about who Jesus is. Also on the Gabfest, We discuss the horrendous evils committed by Ariel Castro. Is God involved when such evil things occur, and how do we reconcile his goodness with the reality of evil and sin?
