"Killing Jesus" was informative and interesting. If you have never done any Biblical, historical research, it is a fascinating look into the historical event that was the life and the grisly crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. It is not for the faint of heart, as the Romans executed and tortured with authoritative expertise.
The Roman machine was an epic power, which I find endlessly fascinating. This story tells not only the life of Jesus of Nazareth but how the Roman leadership systematically imploded.
As a Christian it was impossible to read this history book without the tug of emotions that is evoked when you believe that this horrifying event not only took place, but Jesus did it voluntarily as an innocent, to absorb the guilt for all. I would love to hear reactions from those who could read it as pure history!
