CJ Werleman Interview – Prominent People Project

Posted by on August 21, 2011 in Prominent People Project, Thoughts | 3 comments

CJ Werleman joined me via Skype to talk about his new book “Koran Curious: A Guide for Infidels and Believers“, in which he tackles the taboo subjects of Islam, The Koran and Mohammed, in context with the time it was written and the circumstances that Mohammed lived under. Have a listen, CJ is a very entertaining fellow, and it was great to catch up with him.

Thanks for your time CJ, it was great to chat to you and hopefully we get to meet in person one day. Go buy CJ’s new book at Amazon.com, available in physical or electronic formats. Also available are his two previous books “God Hates You, Hate Him Back” and “Jesus Lied. He Was Only Human“.

  2. Thank you for posting the interview, Marty! That was great! Can’t say I agree with every point of his views, but hey, who wants to end up as Theo van Gogh. Free speech hasn’t became a norm in our lives yet. I’m sure he has done an enormous research before writing this book, but I’m concerned about his sugaring, in the interview, brutal parts of Islam, justifying violence by tough adolescent years of Muhammad. History teaches us not to curtsey to religion, it never ends up well. Liked his take on absolute necessity of acknowledgment, diplomatic approach, and talk about intertwining religions, cultures, and traditions in modern society.
