Killing Jesus (Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard) Book Reviews

Only one reference sourceBill O'Reiily, a committed Catholic, relies upon the only reference source for the life of Jesus which is the New Testament. It's difficult to see this book as anything more than a parroting of those stories since their are no corroborating sources for Jesus's life or events (e.g., there are volumes of Roman records regarding prosecution of historical individuals, but zero concerning Jesus). Since the identity of Jesus is, and always will be, a source of dispute, I.e., the veracity of his most recocognized quotes, the performance of miracles, or whether he was one man or a collage of several people of that time this book cannot be regarded as a historical document, but only another fanciful reinterpretation of the Gospels. O'Reilly doesn't bother to acknowledge the difference..Score: 1/5

Hmm...This was interesting reading for the historical content. And it is exactly how I envision Jesus... as just another man who was murdered in a horrible way. But, it was relatively boring. At least it was cheap..Score: 2/5

Killing JesusFantastic research and easy to follow. Gives you a true feeling of pain , sorrow , and how cruel humans can be towards each other..Score: 5/5

Poorly written, not worth buyingI wish I had read more reviews before paying $15 for this disappointing paraphrasing of the Bible. Nothing interesting. Just poor writing and terrible editing filing 250 pages. I expected more from O'Reilly..Score: 1/5

Killing JesusThis is another interesting well written book by theses two authors. However I am quite disappointed that I didn't learn much I didn't already know from the New Testament. There are some horribly grisly details of the crucifixion not in the Bible and a few visual details, but no new history. The Christmas story is provided as historical when I've read various sources that indicate it was inferred once Jesus was determined to be the Messiah, because it had to fulfill the prophesies. I consider this a somewhat extended passion story..Score: 4/5

Instant Classic!!!What these two authors have put together, should be required reading for every history major in American Universities. It should be widely suggested in parochial schools to both students and parents. This may not be "gospel", but it sure was interesting and thought provoking. I am a more knowledgeable Christian for having read this..Score: 5/5

Written for easy understanding...This was a welcome easy read of subject matter that has been the subject of debate and intense study for centuries. It felt authentic and historically accurate -- made the biblical account of Jesus Christ accessible to the masses....Score: 5/5

Reviews without readingWhile some reviewers complain about the authors copy catting, others claim a lack of integrity or worse. Clearly, none of them have actually read the book and only use the review to vent their own hatred and lack of tolerance by shouting down O'Reilly. However, I will take the advice of one reviewer and judge for myself and so should everyone else..Score: 5/5

Powerful and RivetingThis book is clearly the most powerful chronicle of the one who has changed the world. A pronounced Christian or not, although hard to imagine how not, this surely captures the complete attention of every true reader. What a spectacular and memorable experience this has been for me, a Christian, to get a real sense of the life and times of Jesus Christ. Thank you gentlemen, for this writing. I personally am forever indebted..Score: 5/5

Educated and ImpressedI have a PhD in Old Testament and Hebrew, with minors in Archaeology and New Testament from an accredited Seminary. I put off reading Killing Jesus because I thought it would be just another fictionalized account of Jesus, or a textbook style intro to Jesus life. I was surprised to find an enjoyable countdown to the crucifixion. Unlike some reviews with bias who say with no evidence that Jesus’ life details weren’t known for “10 generations,” I have studied the sources O’Reilly used. They are credible and correctly attributed (some were written within one generation of the death of Jesus, including Roman sources). Thank you for a great work. I recommend it to my students and to anyone who wants to read a realistic recreation of the life and death of Jesus. O’Reilly does not equate Jesus with the Messiah or with the Christ. He simply says that Jesus claimed to be the Messiah. Well done..Score: 5/5

Killing JesusThe authors have done superb writing for the history of this narrative of which I have heard and read since I was a little girl on my grandfathers knee. I am 78 years young & appreciate any thing that adds to my knowledge of the Bible and the history thereof. Thank you Emma.Score: 5/5

Killing JesusDo not bother buying this book. Nothing new or original in the book. Just a restatement of the gospels in a lot more words. Save you money and read a couple different translations of the Bible. I would give it no stars if I could.Score: 1/5

Good ReadI've read and studied some of the bible. Specifically the life of Jesus and his teachings. This book sheds some light on what was going on in and around the time of The Christ. It walks you through his birth to his crucifixion and everyone involved, from the Roman governors to high Jewish priests to his disciples. Glad I picked it up and you will too..Score: 4/5

An eye openerThis book is really informative in terms of the life style and wild recreations the wealthy Romans were involved in, and it also depicts the arrogant religious leaders who didn't miss a single chance to exploit ignorant and simple-minded peasants to the extreme.

Good read, not all correct.I liked it better then I expected, Bill is on here at the house all the time, and well, someone else wrote it. Killing Jesus was very informative, and the writer was able to put me right there, and get me thinking. But, if he was to check with any Pastor or Bible, Jesus was killed 3 years into his ministry. That would make Him 33, no older. Maybe it was a ebook error, but He wasn't 36 or 39, or older. He only ministered 3 years..Score: 4/5

Very insightful but ended abruptlyThere was such an eye-opening depiction of the lives of the people in Jerusalem (Romans, Jews, and those in power), the leadership of Rome and the Jews, and the tribes people in Galilee. I was disappointed with how quickly the book ended - more regarding the aftermath of the Romans, Jews, and Jesus' followers would have been ideal; however, the title was "Killing Jesus", proposing that the aftermath was less important. The authors did a nice job staying historical despite their religious beliefs. Overall, good book..Score: 4/5
