Book Review: The Last Days of Jesus by Bill O'Reilly
Bill O'Reilly tells the story of Jesus' last days by providing important historical context surrounding the Passion story we are all familiar with. He also provides information on the political and social environment of the time, which leads to a more complete understanding of those events.
I was particularly impressed with the illustrations and photos included....they really bring the reader closer to the story.
Although we've all read or seen the story of Jesus' passion, Bill's description of the events of the original Holy Week really convey the intensity of Jesus' passion. I am glad I a got a chance to read it during Lent. I recommend that everyone read it, especially during Lent.
A very well-written and composed book.
