The internet exploded in controversy after Lauren Green’s interview of Reza Aslan. During the interview Green repeatedly asks Aslan, who has a PHD in religious studies, why he thinks he’s qualified to write a book about Jesus being that he’s a Muslim.
In 2011 Lauren Green interviewed Barry Vann, a professor at the Southern Baptist affiliated University of Cumberlands. Vann is the author of the book ‘Puritan Islam: The Geoexpansion of the Muslim World’. The interview focuses largely on Vann’s book and never once does Green think to ask him how being a Southern Baptist qualifies him to write about the Muslim world.
