It's been an eventful few months for Aslan, a religious scholar and author of the New York Times bestseller Zealot, a historical account of the life of Jesus. Last summer, he called Trump "a piece of shit" on Twitter. (Trump, for the record, had just repeated his demand for a travel ban following terror attacks in London.) Aslan deleted the tweet and apologized, but CNN promptly canceled his show, Believer. Now Aslan re-enters the spotlight with a brand-new book, God: A Human History, about how people strive to understand the divine.
