    Story
    "Not the dilute Hollywood version."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Killing Jesus to be better than the print version?

    cannot comment, have only used the audio version


    What did you like best about this story?

    During the mock trial of Jesus, Mr. O'Reilly clearly illustrates the intelligence of Jesus. How he maintains his wits during the terrible torture he has already endured.


    Have you listened to any of Bill O'Reilly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did, however due to the realism of the information, my heart pained too greatly to listen to too much @ a given time.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend & will purchase more books by Mr. O'Reilly.

    I am a middle aged male who thinks radio is bubble gum for the brain, so I listen to books in the car. At least one a month.

    Story
    "Speaks In Absolutes About Everything"
    Would you try another book from Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard and/or Bill O'Reilly?

    Maybe


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good details about Herod.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Argument.


    Any additional comments?

    Bill tries to add some tension or drama to the story by making strong definitive statements and it rubbed me the wrong way. There is no way that anyone could know the truth about certain things that he says as absolute. You also cannot argue against his bold statements, because you do not know either. Just don't write it under the guise of historical fact.

    "Couldnt stop"

    Bill is not the best narrator but this narrative on the history, of things I never knew kept me on and I couldnt stop. I listened in two evenings and got a lot of work done besides. Loved it, and now know so much more behind the scenes and what the setting was, why and how come they did things then. etc. Very good!

    Story
    "An excellent account"
    Would you listen to Killing Jesus again? Why?

    I was very impressed with what I learned. The information that is not available in the usual accounts of the time was almost overwhelming. I was totally engrossed. I am not certain that I absorbed it in its entirety.


    What other book might you compare Killing Jesus to and why?

    I don't have any other book to compare it to. I is my first trip into the genre.


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

    History doesn't lend itself to dramatic delivery. Bill's managed to bring me into the story and held me there.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, however there was too much for me to take in one bite.


    Any additional comments?

    Not at this time.

    "Read Killing History too"

    Didn't seem that historical, so I read Killing History too. Shows how unhistorical this "history" is
