Product Description

A followup to their previous books, Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, Killing Jesus: A History by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard tells the historical story of events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth.

    When I mentioned this title and author to my men's ministry book study group at our church some of our more left leaning members gave me a somewhat disapproving look....well a" Funny Thing" happened on our book study journey...we ALL love it!!...the history is compelling. We will be traveling this book study journey more in depth during the upcoming Christmas to Easter season.

    Great read!!! You may not agree with the messenger but it is a great message.

    As my mom and I continued to listen to the unending debate, we finally decided to give it a try. And so I went into the book with a complete open mind. I figured that even if the book was completely blasphemous, I could handle it. I am a Bible college graduate after all, and I have faced theological liberals in the past, so this would be nothing new.

    I have to tell you that from the beginning, I was so immersed in the book that it was hard for me to put it down. I learned more history in this book than four years of Bible college or a lifetime in the church and participation in deep Bible studies. I love the fact that O'Reilly wrote this in an easy-to-read and understandable format. And he held nothing back. There were a few times that the history was so gruesome that I wanted to turn away.

    The question I kept asking myself is "Why are Christians complaining about this book?" It is clear that the primary source that was used was the Bible, and although not everything was mentioned within the book, it is clear that the events reported are historically verifiable. In other words, O'Reilly has written a history book about the most important historical figure in all of history. And for the naysayers who say he will be condemned and/or judged for writing this book, I say these people are not coming in with an open mind. They are completely wrong. I can say that as a result of reading this book, I am more certain of O'Reilly's faith than I ever have been before.

    I realize that my positive review may cause my faith to be questioned. I believe the Bible one hundred percent, and I can still highly recommend this book. Read it for what it is--a history book. If you read it in the right way, I believe you will think about the person of Jesus Christ in a much different light. I found that I considered things I never thought about before (no spoilers--you need to read it for yourself).

    I read this on my own for the Just For Fun 2014 Reading Challenge.

    One of the best Books I read this year.

    This is a very easy to read and follow retelling of Jesus' life, from birth to death. It takes is a historic look at other sources of information on Jesus and this times he lived in. The format lends itself well to readers all levels, and has a quick pace the holds the reader's attention, and makes you what see what comes next, even when you know the story very well.

    I would highly recommend this book for everyone, weather you're a believer or not. I also think this book would be make a great bible study book or book for a discussion group.
