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.

My son loves to read and has just been baptized. He is a teenager and big into history of all kinds. He learns a lot from the books by O'Reilly.
