I’ll give Glenn Beck credit for at least trying to engage the substance of Reza Aslan’s book about Jesus, but it’s kind of funny watching him attempt it. His arguments are just plain bad. He cites the beginning of the book of Luke as proof that the gospels were eyewitness accounts, but the very verses he cites say the opposite. He can’t even read the words on the screen correctly, saying the opposite of what Aslan says and adding words to it.
I have no idea if Aslan’s book is any good. I haven’t read it and I likely never will. It may be total nonsense. But the Christian right freaking out about it has led them to make very, very bad arguments so far.
