    Actually Reza was my professor in college...such an insightful person and inspiring thinker. I feel comfortable in saying that his studies are completely unbiased and viewed from a scholar's standpoint.

    Too bad this anchor spent so much air time asking him to defend why a Muslim would write about Jesus, when he seems like he has some great information to share with anyone interested in history and religion. And too bad she starts with such a bias because of his faith, what a waste of his time.

    Kind of painful to watch. As a Christian, I find myself on the side of the author in this interview. Feels like everyone is putting Reza into their own box of what a Muslim is and thinks. Unfortunately this seems to be what get's in the way of healthy conversations in general, biases and preconceptions. I'd like to try out the book.

      Indeed. So far the book is really good. The author, Reza, is a buddy and a good man. For an agnostic like myself, I've been really blown away by some of the learnings - especially around the role of James (the brother of Jesus) and his perspective on the need to deliver not just with faith, but in actions of giving of oneself for the betterment of others. Really incredible values, frankly.
