"I am a scholar of religions with four degrees including one in the New Testament . . . I am an expert with a Ph.D. in the history of religions . . . I am a professor of religions, including the New Testament–that’s what I do for a living, actually . . . To be clear, I want to emphasize one more time, I am a historian, I am a Ph.D. in the history of religions."
In fact, Aslan holds NO degrees in history. Religion isn't history (BA), theological studies isn't history (MTS), creative writing isn't history (MFA), and a Ph.D. in Sociology is NOT a Ph.D. in History.
