Killing Jesus

Oh no … please no …

After turning two presidential assassinations into best sellers, Bill O’Reilly says his next book will be about the execution of Jesus.

Killing Jesus will be published Sept. 24 using the same style and collaborator, Martin Dugard, that O’Reilly used in Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy.

O’Reilly announced the news Wednesday night at the end of his Fox News show, The O’Reilly Factor, saying “We’ve uncovered some interesting things about the execution of Jesus of Nazareth and how it all ties into Roman power.”

He offered no details, but told viewers, “I think you’re going to like it.”

This promises to be dreadful. Remember that O’Reilly’s book on Lincoln was so bad that the park service took it off the shelves. Now he’s entering the world of Biblical history, which is probably the most fraught area of ancient history there is.
