    "Well done"

    I enjoyed the narrator even in spite of his using pronunciation of landmarks that I had never heard. It was moving to listen to this story during Holy Week and I learned more about the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion such as the emphasis on getting Jesus to say something blasphemous. Excellent

    "Learned a lot of bible details and history."

    As a Christian, I'm glad I spent the time to read this as a history book of the Gospels. I learned new facts.

    "Loved it"

    Great book that was very informative. I was not sure that I would enjoy it based on the title and the description but I ended up listening to the entire book in one setting and loved every minute of it.

    Story
    "A Well-Taught History Lesson for Non Christians"

    Dugard and O'Reilly present a detailed and entertaining history of the people and circumstances surrounding the life of Jesus of Nazareth. It lifts Jesus above the veil of mysticism and presents him as a real person who was born at a certain time and place, who lived a life that affected all who knew him, and who did not need cheap magic tricks to astound the entire world then and ever after.

    O'Reilly reads his own book as he heads his own news show script. The writing style was more instructive than descriptive which flattened the tone of the horrific brutality of the age; however, it flattened the beauty and emotion as well.

    Killing Jesus was a welcomed relief from Eileen Pagels and her fellow cultural revisionists who take texts that were written 300 years after Jesus' death in preference to those written 30 years afterwards and who disregard 2000 years of hermeneutic research and preservation in preference for their own opinion on what ancients texts actually say.

    As a parting thought to Dugard & O'Reilly, I suggest a subtitle for Killing Jesus: An Inconvenient Truth.
