Actually you don't understand, with all due respect. This guy is not a historian. He misrepresented his credentials. His PhD is not in History of Religion, but sociology.
Yes he has the right to write any book he wants, but an interviewer has the right to question his motives. I wonder if anyone here commenting has actually read the book. I have read 2/3 of it, and can say his motives are to present the Muslim view of Jesus as historical fact. Again, he has the right to do it, but let's not put our heads in the sand and pretend this is some objective scholarly new evidence about Jesus the Savior. This book is nothing more than a very well educated Muslim restating the long held Muslim view of Jesus, but also trying to present that opinion as historical fact.
