Review: Killing Jesus: A History

Killing Jesus: A History
Killing Jesus: A History by Bill O’Reilly
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a secular take on Jesus. It is presented mostly from a Roman point of view. I learned a few things about Caesars and Roman history that I had not known before. As in O’Reilly’s previous books in this series, this one is very engaging and a quick read. As a Christian, I did not read anything that I thought was objectionable or contrary to what I know and believe from Holy Scripture. However, as with the previous books in this series, he wrote in feelings and thoughts for the characters in the story that we would not otherwise know. Other than those things that make this almost a fictionalized read, it was a very interesting and factual book that I would recommend for anyone who wants to know the historical account about Jesus but not a doctrinal, theological one. For that, I would recommend the Gospels in the Bible.
