Reza Aslan's Fox News interview over book stirs controversy (VIDEO)

A Fox News interview between scholar Reza Aslan and anchor Lauren Green has gone viral.

Green had Aslan on her Fox News show to discuss his book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.

Green started off the interview asking why he wrote a book about the founder of Christianity if he is a Muslim.

Aslan appeared to be surprised by her question, saying, "Well, to be clear, I am a scholar of religions with four degrees, including one in the New Testament, and fluency in biblical Greek, who has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades, who also just happens to be a Muslim."

When Green probed for more information, Aslan began talking to her in a slowed tone.

However, she still remained unsettled, accusing him of failing to disclose that he's a Muslim in his book about Jesus.

He replied by saying his book quickly mentions that he is Muslim and all other interviews have mentioned it as well.
