Zealot by Reza Aslan

Tuesday • June 2 • 1pm

Bellevue Store

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

Written by bestselling author Reza Aslan, this fascinating, provocative, and meticulously researched biography challenges long-held assumptions about the man we know as Jesus of Nazareth. Balancing the Jesus of the Gospels against historical sources and context, Zealot yields a fresh perspective on one of the greatest stories ever told even as it affirms the radical and transformative nature of Jesus of Nazareth's life and mission. The result is a thought-provoking, elegantly written biography with the pulse of a fast-paced novel: a singularly brilliant portrait of a man, a time, and the birth of a religion.

When the body of a murdered woman is found in the decaying European city of Beszel, it looks like a routine case for Inspector Tyador Borlú. But to investigate, he must travel across a border unlike any other to its rival neighbor, the vibrant city of Ul Qoma, quickly finding himself enmeshed in a sordid and dangerous underworld of nationalists and unificationists each intent on achieving opposite aims. With shades of Kafka and Philip K. Dick, Raymond Chandler and 1984, The City & the City is a murder mystery taken to dazzling metaphysical and artistic heights.
