Item Details

"Millions of readers have thrilled to author Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, page-turning works of nonfiction that have changed the way we read history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly two thousand years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion people attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God. Killing Jesus will take readers inside Jesus's life, recounting the seismic political and historical events that made his death inevitable--and changed the world forever"--

An interesting look at the historical background to Jesus' life and times, from a non-Christian perspective. Well researched and well worth reading.

Embarassed that I enjoyed a Bill O'Reilly book. Not being a FOX new viewer I forgot who the author was when I picked this book to read. But found the non-evangelical tone appealing. Much of the historical detail the authors chose to include was disturbing to say the least, however.

Fascinating read. Thought I could stop reading, but read the book through. Well researched, unbiased and a fresh and different perspective. Well done.

I closed this book after 70 pages. Maybe I was expecting more after reading "Killing Lincoln".

Superbly-written, objective and with lots of research, evocative and succeeded in elevating it to a credible history book. This makes it a very interesting read that's hard to put down.

I found I couldn't put this book down. I really enjoyed the larger historical context surrounding the life of Jesus. Well-researched and laid out. Was a page turner for me.

This book does a great job of putting the life of Jesus - and those around him - into context. Unbiased, well-researched, very readable.
