yes it was just so easy to understand and a n interesting topic
he just read and i loved that!
yes for sure!
I hope Bill will continue to make stories like this easy to understand!
I enjoyed this book and have enjoyed the other "Killing..." books by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard however I had one issue. Why was the Last Supper not mentioned? They mentioned the room, table and cushions to recline on and then focused only on Judas Iscariot being exposed as a traitor by Jesus. All believers practice the sacrament of Communion in one way or another but you chose to skip past it like it wasn't important. With that one exception I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about Jesus.
My only quibble is with some minor details. Granted that they make the book much more interesting but, without citations, one has to question their historical accuracy. Perhaps these citations are included in the printed edition.
The killing of Jesus is very informative straight to the point. It helps the reader understand the chronology of the crucifixion of Jesus. Unbiased information about the people that was involved. Being a firm believer of Jesus, I was relieved to find that it is very factual in every way. Thank you Bill O'Reilly, you have a grateful fan. The killing of Lincoln was written the same way and I was not disappointed in any way. The killing of Kennedy is next on my list.
It would be better if it was FACTUAL and not based on opinion and conjecture
he does not pronounce words correctly as they are written
the whole book would be edited.
The Bible is the Word of God and is without error.
does an OK job in telling the story....but bill seams to think Jesus turned the money changers tables over twice, and I for one would like to see the research that supports this statement. other than that the book was good.
The book is written and structured well. It paints vivid and colorful portraits of the various characters in the story. What bugs me about the book is that it lasts true historical or theological understanding of what The message of Jesus was all about, and why it upset some representatives of the temple enough to want to kill him. Especially if you compare this book to a serious theologian like NT Wright's work , it falls completely flat when it comes to deepening the readers understanding of why Jesus was killed.
I would recommend it if you are interested in colorful anecdotes from the times of Jesus, but if you are interested in trying to understand the conflict between Jesus and the temple I recommend checking out NT Wright.
I love this book. However, he way Bill says "donkey" sounds like "monkey" with a "d". He says it as dunky instead of dawnky. I hate hearing him say it!!!
