    Nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh has long wanted to make American history come to life for the children of his listeners. In Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, he created the character of a fearless middle-school history teacher named Rush Revere, who travels back in time and experiences American history as it happens, in adventures with exceptional Americans. In this second book in the series, Rush Revere is transported back to the people and events leading up to the American Revolution.

    Story
    Would you listen to Rush Revere and the First Patriots again? Why?

    I will gladly listen to both his books in this series again and again. Not only is Rush's reading engaging, but the story line AND the historical facts describing America's fight for FREEDOM has inspired me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked best his engaging story line, sprinkled with plenty of humor and seasoned with historical fact.


    What does Rush Limbaugh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His ability to communicate through the spoken word is most helpful to me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud several times.


    Any additional comments?

    I heartily recommend this book to all adults who love America -- oh, and by the way, to their children as well.

    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view 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 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard and/or Bill O'Reilly?

    I am not sure if I would get another by O'Reilly. I might give him one more shot at making me a follower. I need to think about it more. The big problem I have with the book is the amount of time Bill spent rehearsing the salacious details of the sexual deviancies of many of the Roman leaders. I fast-forwarded a few times because, frankly, I got to thinking the detail seemed simply gratuitous. I mean, while it is good to know of the hedonism of the day, there is enough of it in our own culture that I did not want to be inundated with it within the story line.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Bill could have skimmed over much of the sexual escapades of the Roman hierarchy.


    Was Killing Jesus worth the listening time?

    Yes, except as I noted above.
