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.

Excellent story. Well written and takes you to the times of Jesus. Bill O'Reilly should have hired an actor to narrate the book. With his voice it sounds too much like a news report.
As one who reads the Bible regularly, Mr O'Reilly provides an understandable and interesting explanation about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is not so much of a spiritual story but provides facts about the culture of the time and the significance of most of the events. I enjoy listening to him and have heard all his :Killing..." books.
Yes, to learn more about Jesus and the environment he lived.
The interaction of the Jews, Jesus and Rome presented in a historical perspective.
None that I can recall
Please don't get me wrong that there is new information that I learned in this book, but there was far more repetition of things I already knew than there was of things I didn't. This is an excellent book for non-believers. In fact the way it was written almost promotes itself to non-Christians. If you have non-Christian or agnostic friends that are interested in a fact based history on Jesus Christ's life then this is the book for them. Established Christians will learn new things from this book as well, but there will be a lot of repetition especially if you are well versed in the Bible.
