Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christianity makes a lot of sense... Well-researched, well-written... The author did not try to sell whatever their beliefs are... But I am moved to practice my faith and learn more. I know I will go back reading this book again and again... Thanks, Bill and Martin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly Interesting I bought this book even though the title bothered me, because of the reviews it received. It's one thing to read the bible and think I know the story of Jesus, but this book brought to life the political and social impacts of that ancient time and allowed a much better understanding of the events that had to come together in order to complete His life and death. Thank you, Mr. O'Reilly, for your time and effort in researching this part of our history and for sharing it with us in such an interesting way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killing Jesus Fantastic book to read. A complete history lesson in one. PLEASE upon completion of your reading, take time to read all of the footnotes and references. It makes for reading a second book in themselves. Great job Mr. O'Reilly, and Mr. Dugard thank you

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting This is the first book of O'Reilly's that I have read and am curious now based on this and the Killing Kennedy movie that National Geographic showed last November to read the others in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting Another tour de force from O'Reilly and Dugard. This is a detailed, non religious, telling of the story with eye-opening historical influences noted. As did so many oppressive ruling classes, the Romans kept a record of their behavior, good and bad, and the research that went into the book is remarkable. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned and-or relearned much material that my teachers tried to instill when I was younger and less open to this kind of history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killing Jesus I learned much more from this book then I had thought to know before. It's vivid, alive with clear details and the most I've received is a clear understanding of what was happening around Jesus' time - the view of the big picture! Great read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome read .. An amazing history of the "man" Jesus of Nazareth,, not "Messiah" or "the Christ", but the man who walked the earth, flesh and blood and the world as it was in that time... You will have a very hard time putting this book down..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killing jesus A thoroughly enjoyable Read. You don't have to be a believer to be completely captivated by this book

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killing Jesus This is a book that every Christian should read simply for it's ability to remind us of the humanity of Jesus in his unimaginable suffering. It does raise questions of course, whose answers are a matter of faith. I find this book influential and timely. Thank you to the authors.
