Religious Scholar and Provocateur Reza Aslan Joins Us November 14th!

Religious Scholar and Provocateur Reza Aslan Joins Us November 14th!

Don't miss an inspirational evening with writer and scholar of religions, Reza Aslan, November 14 at Seattle First Baptist Church. Aslan's new book, God, is an interfaith exploration of the origin of religion and how different ideas of God have both united, and divided us for millennia. At the nucleus of this provocative new work is one idea that has spanned time, locations, and cultures: the concept of the “humanized god”—a supercharged, divine version of ourselves.

The event will be held at Seattle First Baptist Church at 7:30 PM. Aslan will give an original, multi-media presentation on his work. Tickets include a copy of his new book.
