Narration was very good - keep my interest during entire time of book. Loved it!
Overall, I thought it was a good book. A few things stated as fact, are fairly well known to be later, theological doctrine. Case in point, stating Mary Magdalena was the prostitute or that James was an associate of Jesus, when he was his biological brother.
Purveyor of Fine Books
Bill O'Reilly's narration is excellent. He treats the subject with respect without being dramatic. I learned many tidbits of knowledge that I did not know before. I especially appreciated the section which pointed out many historical events that occurred after Jesus' death and how they impacted events not only in their own time but also today.
Bill O'Reilly did an excellent job narrating this story. As the author of the story, he used colorful language to put the reader in the moment. The writing was historical, yet done so in a manner to keep your attention. Additionally, the writing did not come across as opinion, but rather as fact. I didn't question the references.
I really liked this book but again It was an overwhelming amount of Roman history. I understand why so much history of the Romans iy helped lengthen this book. I don't regret getting it though
