Bestselling author of Zealot and No god but God, Reza Aslan comes to CHF to deliver a wide-ranging account of humanity’s struggle to make sense of the divine, and how the idea of god—from its prehistoric origins to a single divine personality—continues to offer new ways of connecting people of different faiths. In his most personal book to date, god: A Human History, the host of CNN’s “Believer” sounds a call to embrace a deeper, more expansive understanding of God with the concept of a “humanized god”—a supercharged, divine version of ourselves—at its nucleus. More than just a history of our understanding of God, Aslan gets to the root of this humanizing impulse in order to develop a more universal spirituality.
