  This program origionally aired on 12-08-2017.

UI Writer's Workshop graduate Reza Aslan has been writing and talking about God for most of his career. His newest book God: A Human History follows his last title Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.

"If we can learn to stop hoisting our own emotions upon God, I think we can pave the path for a much more peaceful religiosity," he says. 

During this Talk of Iowa conversation, he talks with host Charity Nebbe about why humans of all walks of life have developed their own explanations for who God is and who God is not.
