I read Killing Lincoln soon after it was released and enjoyed it very much and was very intrigued by this one, Killing Jesus. It took me a while to read this book simply because it is so heavy with history, imagination and stories from scripture that I could only take a few pages at the time. Having said that I don’t want to leave you with the impression that it was boring. It was not boring.
The writers make no attempt to make this a Christian book. It is written purely as a historical account. I do have to say that the line is blurry between what is true historical fact and the imagination of the writers. The absence of footnotes led me to believe that much was their imagination. That’s ok with me as long as it stays true to what the Bible does say.
For the preacher and teacher I would say that this book might help you be more creative when discussing the gospels in a sermon or teaching session. I’m sure many of us could use some creativity. LOL!
Remember this when reading this book. Bill O’Reilly is a Catholic and some of what you read will be from that perspective.
On a 1 – 10 rating I would give Killing Jesus an 8.
