uase dois mil anos depois de Jesus ter sido brutalmente assassinado pelos soldados romanos, mais de 2,2 bilhões de pessoas ainda tentam seguir os ensinamentos de uma das figuras mais polêmicas e revolucionárias da História e que muitos acreditam ser o messias. Agora Bill O’Reilly e Martin Dugard contam em detalhes os acontecimentos inquietantes que levaram à execução do homem mais influente que já caminhou sobre a Terra. Os últimos passos de Jesus apresenta um homem de grande intelecto em sua luta para aceitar o destino que o aguarda. Abrangendo desde o nascimento dele até o fim de seu ministério, a narrativa se concentra em apresentar os fatos que envolvem sua vida e o contexto histórico da época. Este é o resultado de uma extensa pesquisa que traz informações esclarecedoras sobre a Terra Santa, o texto bíblico e toda a crueldade da ocupação romana – inclusive a crucificação, a punição mais desumana e temida naqueles tempos. Este instigante relato sobre Jesus e seu tempo também apresenta em cores vivas outros personagens históricos importantes, como Júlio César, Cleópatra, César Augusto, Herodes, Pôncio Pilatos e João Batista. A partir de descrições ricas sobre os costumes do Império Romano, a vida dos judeus da época e sua maneira de enxergar o mundo, você vai testemunhar os eventos históricos e políticos que tornaram inevitável a morte de Jesus de Nazaré.… (mere)

Disappointed in this book. The 1st section is about the Salem Witch Trials, but it was pretty basic and I didn’t learn much new. The next section deals briefly with Ben Franklin and the writing of the US Constitution, only vague references to the Salem Witch Trials, but I get the separation of state and religion. Finally the 3rd part of the Book retells the real life inspiration for The Exorcist book and movie. The connection with Salem again just a thread. So although I’ve read and liked other books in the author’s “Killing” series, this one missed the mark for me,… (mere)

Writing: 4.5; Theme: 5.0; Content: 4.5; Language: 4.5; Overall: 4.5

This was the first in Bill O'Reilly's "Killing" Series that I've read. It was a very eye-opening revelation of these three entertainers and icons. I knew some about each of these figures, but the author shares inside information on each of these individuals that most probably were not aware of. Two of the three (Presley and Lennon) of course died early in life and Ali suffered through Parkinson's disease a good part of his life. O'Reilly shares with his readership what haunted all three of these men- they all had great fame and they all allowed others to control them and their lives which led to very troubling ends for each one. Highly recommend.
