This year Christians worldwide will celebrate the 1700th anniversary of Constantine's conversion and victory at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge. No Roman emperor had a greater impact on the modern world than did Constantine. The reason is not simply that he converted to Christianity but that he did so in a way that brought his subjects along after him. Indeed, this major new biography argues that Constantine's conversion is but one feature of a unique administrative style that enabled him to take control of an empire beset by internal rebellions and external threats by Persians and Goths.

So much information here to digest. Storyline rambled at times...then it would cycled back around. I'd love to see this book in a movie.

The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

What made the experience of listening to Killing Lincoln the most enjoyable?

True history!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lincoln...he just knew his days were numbered. BUT he pressed on, not for self but for God & country.

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

No but I intend to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Lincoln's life was not for self, but for others.

Any additional comments?

I can't seem to go back to my saved bookmarks & make corrections or additions on a particular bookmark...w/o making a new bookmark. Any suggestions???
