BELIEVER with Reza Aslan

BELIEVER with Reza Aslan tall

Best-selling author and religious scholar Reza Aslan embarks on a spiritual adventure, immersing himself in religious traditions both familiar and downright bizarre to experience life as a true believer. He participates in endurance worship, spellbinding rituals, and unusual rites of passage to learn about rarefied worlds that have been moulded by faith and tradition. The goal, Aslan says, is for viewers to recognize that while these traditions may look weird, perhaps even scary, experiencing the practices is the only way to overcome first impressions and break through uneasy feelings.
