    "Historic view of a familiar story"
    Where does Killing Jesus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top rankings. Good pace, good voice, good story from a historic point of view.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Jesus?

    I really enjoyed the point of view from using history and the bible as reference points.


    Any additional comments?

    I agree with other reviews.. don't read this as a book that will change your views on Jesus. Read this to learn more about his life from a history side of things.

    Story
    "Historically accurate"
    Where does Killing Jesus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far it rates as one of the best I've read. It's historically accurate, I learned new things about the death of Christ.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That while it was a book about the death of christ, it wasnt your atypical "Religious Book"


    Did Bill O'Reilly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes He Did, like he explained that I believe it was Harrod was Rotund desribed what that meant, described that he could barely walk because of his gout, and that he had had maggots in his private area


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes when he described Judas's betrayal, and then he says in the footnote that it is assumed that judas hanged himself, but that there is only mention that he bought a rope. and that he's never heard from again.


    Any additional comments?

    I strongly recommend this book.

    "Confusing"

    The book is about the Roman Empire, the Jews, the political environment, etc... especially at the beginning. I was disappointed and couldn't continue listening to the book.

    Story
    "More Than I Bargined For"
    If you could sum up Killing Jesus in three words, what would they be?

    Jesus in context


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Jesus?

    When Jesus first meets Peter in the fishing boat was the most memorable moment for me because I did not realize the conditions and the state of mind Peter was when Jesus made him the first disciple.


    What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

    Bill O'Reilly's voice inflections kept the story of Jesus interesting and down to earth.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Meet Jesus in context of the world he lived in and decide for yourself if you believe he is the Son of God.


    Any additional comments?

    It reaffirmed my faith that Christ was real and is, the Son of God.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm not as knowledgeable about Jesus as I would like to be and I thought this would be a good start. The story was presented as known facts about Jesus and the history of how the socal climate druing Jesus time. I found it very helpful for me.

    Story
    "Ugh bill O'Reilly' voice"
    Would you listen to Killing Jesus again? Why?

    No, once was enough. I liked the book but can't stand O'Reilly' pompous voice. I can't stand his authoritative stance. I was glad when it was over. I thought it was very factual, informative, and I enjoyed the story but O'Reilly skips around often and is sometimes hard to follow.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes


    What aspect of Bill O'Reilly’s performance would you have changed?

    I would rather it wad narrated by someone else. Bill's voice can sometimes be annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is worth listening to.
    There is so much information, that I am listening to it for the second time. It's a lot to digest all at once.

    Story
    "I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book."
    If you could sum up Killing Jesus in three words, what would they be?

    To O'Reilly's credit, he has written the book like the high school history teacher he once in fact was. The best part of the book is that one never feels as if O'Reilly is proseltyzing. Almost as good is the realistic sense O'Reilly gives of the Roman times and the fascinating politics in the hundred years leading up to and during the story of Jesus. I was prepared not to like this book but I had to happily eat my words.

    Story
    "Very Interesting....."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm not convinced that this book is 100% historically correct. However, the book did open my eyes to yet another perspective and opinion. There was not enough supporting information to convince me of the complete view of the author but was worth the time.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The order of events that the author proclaimed that the events happened.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The many times that Christ took to teach his disciples.


    Do you think Killing Jesus needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, to provide the supporting information that this book proclaims,

    Story
    "Entertaining but also O'Reilly's interpretations"

    It's not all history. O'Reilly makes several of his interpretations on the meaning written in the Bible in this book. One in particular that I didn't like was on Jesus's conversation in John 3. I think it's an entertaining, well written book, just with some of Bill's interpretations of meaning within the Bible. I'd still recommend listing to it if you're interested in Jesus.
