Allen & Unwin is delighted to announce we have secured Australian and NZ rights to the surprise bestseller, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan.

Described by Publishers Weekly as ‘compulsively readable’, Zealot is a provocative and meticulously researched biography that challenges long-held assumptions about the man we know as Jesus of Nazareth.
