Killing Jesus by Bill O'Reilly

Bill O'Reilly fashions this book after his other books, Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln.  He discussed the background of Jesus but also the history of the time period and the leaders in power.  It was very interesting to learn more about Augustus Caesar, Pontius Pilate and even the Pharisee, Caiaphas.  O'Reilly does get some of the theology wrong, but he also admits that he is not advocating Christianity, but only reporting the facts as he knows/sees them.  I wouldn't say the book is Biblical, but it is a very interesting read, if you're into the history of the Bible.
