User reviews about the book

Don't waste your time. Read the bible.
By Fuzzy mustard
I'm thirteen years old, and I've made the decision to follow Jesus. Personally, I rather be able to pick up and open a bible rather then be touch a Harry Potter book. I think that the closer you keep it to the bible the better. Plus, had no sin, but I can't say the same for Libcoln. All in all I loved this book.
Exceptional read !
I felt as though I was living in the days of Jesus, such great description and attention to details, I loved it
Poorly written, not worth buying
I 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.
Sad Imitation of Biblical Scholarship
As an ordained minister with a degree in Biblical Studies I can assure potential readers that this book plays fast and loose with both facts and interpretation. It represents neither liberal scholarship, any orthodox tradition of interpretation, nor even a semblance of sincere effort. It's simply a half baked mess.
Biased, outright lie.
This Book is not an historical book by no means. It's the same old lies from the 'New Testament' only in a nicer package. It is not based on anything besides for that
It was awesome Jesus is alive Christians stand up for there beliefs
Only one reference source
Bill 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of miracles, or whether he was one man or a collage of several people of that time this book cannot be regarded as a historical document, but only another fanciful reinterpretation of the Gospels.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.
Powerful and Riveting
This 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.
By David "cool hand" Rios
I'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.
