Overview

Hace dos mil años, un predicador judío atravesó Galilea haciendo milagros y reuniendo seguidores para establecer lo que él llamó el "Reino de Dios." El movimiento revolucionario que puso en marcha fue tan amenazante para el orden establecido que fue capturado, torturado, y ejecutado como un criminal del Estado. Décadas después de su infame muerte, sus seguidores le llamaron Dios. Zealot da una nueva perspectiva sobre una de las más grandes historias jamás contadas, incluso afirma la naturaleza radical y transformadora de la vida y misión de Jesús de Nazaret. El resultado es una biografía que invita a la reflexión, elegantemente escrita con el pulso de una novela emocionante: un retrato singular y brillante de un hombre, de una era, y el nacimiento de una religión.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Soon after Reza Aslan's The Zealot first appeared in an English language edition, it landed near the top of bestseller lists and squarely in the center of controversy. Some of the critiques focused on its author's personal religious beliefs, causing some readers and reviewers to invite others to redirect their attention to the book itself. That said, Aslan's view of Jesus as a Jewish preacher who threatened the power structure provides a fresh perspective on the Nazarene's teachings and trials.
