“Religion, it must be understood, is not faith. Religion is the story of faith.”
REZA ASLAN, NO GOD BUT GOD
Reza Aslan is an internationally renowned writer, commentator, professor, producer, and scholar of religions. In God: A Human History, he thoughtfully explores the history of religion as an attempt to understand the divine by giving God human traits and emotions. In layered prose and with accessible scholarship, Aslan cohesively roots out this humanizing impulse in order to develop a more universal spirituality.
Aslan’s books, including his #1 New York Times Bestseller Zealot, have been translated into dozens of languages. He is a recipient of the prestigious James Joyce Award, a tenured Professor of Creative Writing at the University of California, Riverside and serves on the board of trustees for the Chicago Theological Seminary and The Yale Humanist Community. Born in Iran, he lives in Los Angeles with his wife, author and entrepreneur, Jessica Jackley, and their three sons.
