Killing Jesus by Bill O’Reilly

Killing Jesus

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.
