How come O'Reilly wasn't being held up as the savior of American values when he hosted a show that talked about the sex lives of Hollywood actors?
He's a joke. The thing I find incredible is that so many professing Christians are captivated for going on two decades by FOX news and all their constant lies. It is strange to watch the delusion of a people from the outside. And a bit perplexing at times. Almost every doctor's office has it running in the waiting rooms. I have to have FOX filtered through those who report on it - otherwise it would just make me totally sick.

I certainly wouldn't purchase his book. I've seen him interview people who knew a lot more about religion than he did, and he just blew them off. His constant self promotion finally got to me. I've pretty much walked away from politics anymore. The country is such a mess, its in a almost hopeless downward spiral, circling the drain.
I agree with you.

The writers of the Gospels were not present at the cruxifiction. How do they know what Jesus said? I assume the women present Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene must have told someone about what Jesus said in the cross.

Are the exact words that important?
Excellent point.

I've read somewhere between 1/4 to 1/3 of the book according to my e-reader. Like O'Reilly's other books, Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy, it is co-authored by Martin Dugard. It's an easy, entertaining read. It is intended to be a historical account of Jesus's life, the people surrounding him, and the times. I've read some online critiques that question some of history presented, such as the Pharisees demeanor, Paul being presented as a Christian, and the gleaning of Roman and Jewish writings for historical use.

I'm a Protestant Christian. Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard are both Roman Catholics. I don't see anything wrong with the book.

No different then reading a book by Fred Flintstone about the science discovered in the Big Bang and all detail. Worse.

Its all board room contrived.
It seems so obvious. But just look at the pile of money he will make from it. I wonder what he does with all that money? And yet the hard right screams bloody murder when there is any mention of raising the minimum wage even though the cost of living keeps rising but wages for labor do not. It's unjust. This world system is unjust.

I believe BO gives much to charity. In addition, like most high-income earners, he pays a large tax bill. What he does with the rest is nobody's business. He earned it-it's his.

I read Killing Lincoln, and enjoyed it. I hope to read Killing Kennedy soon. As far as Killing Jesus, I'm not sure yet.
