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. Killing Jesus will take listeners inside Jesus' life, recounting the seismic political and historical events that made his death inevitable and changed the world forever.

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!

Happy I heard it on Audible. I am sure to listen to it again too.
