Bill O’Reilly is, like me, a lover of history. He makes no bones about being Catholic, but he also makes it clear that this is not a religious book. It’s meant to present the historical facts about the life of Jesus that will help readers to better understand the story they already know.
I’ve read a fair amount of material endorsed by the Catholic Church about Jesus Christ. Some of it does try to include a historical context, but I found there was fascinating information in this book that I hadn’t heard before. It was interesting, informative and even enlightening in some respects. It is by no means thorough, but it’s meant to be a beginner course – narrative non-fiction for the masses. For believers and non-believers alike, there is something here for everyone.
