Packed with fascinating details, this fast-paced narrative will transport readers back in time. In an exploration of the political and social landscape at the time of Jesus’s life, Bill O’Reilly takes on the questions surrounding his death. Who was involved in the trial and sentencing of Jesus? What circumstances led to his conviction? What were the motivations in killing Jesus? In the same way that the author gave fresh insight into the lives and times of Lincoln and Kennedy, this is an intimate portrait of the Jesus of history. Jesus’s Last Days is geared toward young readers, and is sure to make kids reconsider the man they thought they knew.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus walked across Galilee; everywhere he traveled he gained followers. His contemporaries are familiar historical figures: Julius Caesar, Caesar Augustus, Herod the Great, Pontius Pilate. It was an era of oppression, when every man, woman, and child answered to the brutal rule of Rome. In this world, Jesus lived, and in this volatile political and historical context, Jesus died--and changed the world forever.
Adapted from Bill O'Reilly's bestselling historical thriller Killing Jesus, and richly illustrated, The Last Days of Jesus is a riveting, fact-based account of the life and times of Jesus.
Bill O’Reilly is a former high-school history teacher and the author of several number one bestselling books, including Lincoln’s Last Days and Killing Kennedy. He is also the anchor of The O’Reilly Factor, the highest-rated cable news show in the country.

Summary: "This distillation of the best-selling Killing Jesus: A History (2013) retains the original's melodramatic tone and present-tense narration." - Kirkus Reviews Praise for Kennedy's Last Days : "A thoroughly documented, visually rich presentation." Kirkus Reviews Praise for Killing Kennedy : "All the suspense and drama of a popular thriller." Husna Haq, The Christian Science Monitor "Immersively written . . . Mr. O'Reilly and Mr. Dugard succeed in investing a familiar national tragedy with fresh anguish . . . A powerful historical prcis." Janet Maslin, The New York Times Praise for Lincoln's Last Days : "This thrillerlike adaptation captures the excitement of the Union victory in the Civil War and the shock and horror that quickly followed as the country learned of Lincoln's death and sought revenge on his assassins. The popularity of O'Reilly's adult title will drive interest in this version, but it definitely stands alone and will find an audience among general readers and report writers." School Library Journal "Accessible to younger readers." Booklist Praise for Killing Lincoln : "If Grisham wrote a novel about April 1865 . . . it might well read like Killing Lincoln ." Peter J. Boyer, Newsweek "[ Killing Lincoln ] delivers a taut, action-packed narrative with cliff-hangers aplenty." The Christian Science Monitor "[ Killing Lincoln ] is nonfiction, albeit told in white-knuckled, John Grisham-like style." The New York Post. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0805098771
