Killing Jesus: A History

Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, read by Bill O’Reilly. Macmillan Audio, unabridged five CDs, 6.5 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-4272-3332-5

Bill O’Reilly and Dugard team up again for the third installment in their series on the murders of major cultural and historical icons. This time around, the authors deliver a thorough account of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ by the Romans. With years of broadcasting experience, O’Reilly is the perfect choice to narrate his own work, which he did for the two previous audio editions in the series. O’Reilly’s familiarity with the text is clear, and he reads it seamlessly in a powerful voice that captures listener attention. However, at times, his clipped cadence and emphatic reading may wear on listeners. Still, the many fans of these extremely popular audiobooks will likely enjoy his narration and engaging subject matter. A Henry Holt hardcover. (Sept.)
