I found this book to be very interesting, thought provoking.
Yes. This is as excellent ans the others.
I felt like I was there. O'Reilly 's narrative was so descriptive. I felt like I was there. wonderful historic facts. I learned so much
Bill O'Reilly does an excellent job in both his writing and reading. He does a fantastic job going through some of the historical issues, especially at the popular level. He does spend a lot of time assessing the rise of the Roman empire which is important, but seems a bit over emphasized in this book. Most of his historical decisions are laudable with very few and minor misconceptions. I highly recommend this book to any looking for an introductory book to the historical Jesus in his setting.
Either this isn't as good (complete, accurate) as his others, or this is a topic on which I'm well enough read to pick out the biases and discrepancies with other histotians/thrologians. The Roman history was interesting, though, particularly listening a couple of weeks after the Ides of March.
As a Christian during the time of Lent walking through the reflection that all faithful Christians seek , I found Killing Jesus to be a worthy text in support of my faith.
Furthermore, hearing the documented history of Jesus and knowing the biblical count of his life, has further solidified what I already knew. There is no such thing as coincidence and Jesus's message resonates more within my mind and soul than it ever has!!
A well-known part of history with some extra information of the times added. There was a little bit of repetition in some of the descriptions that I would have rather not heard.
I don't think anything was more interesting or least interesting, except for some of the repetitive descriptions.
It's easier to listen to a book while you drive!
not into that, sorry!
What a fantastic book!
I wasn't sure what to expect but this book appears to be a well researched account of the life and death of Jesus. For those of Christian faith, this book gives an incredible insight into the background and reasoning (or lack thereof) for Jesus' death. For those without this faith, it will give some understanding of who this man was.
A definite recommendation for Holy Week reading!
