NEW YORK Feb 21 Television host and author Bill
O'Reilly, whose previous books were about the assassinations of
two U.S. presidents, will tackle another famous death in his
upcoming work, "Killing Jesus: A History," his publisher said on
The Fox News television network anchor will write the book,
which will be published on Sept. 24, with Martin Dugard, the
co-author of "Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot" and "Killing
Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America
The book will chronicle the political and historical events
leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth and the
impact of his death, according to the publisher Henry Holt and
"It is inarguable that Jesus was the most influential man to
have ever lived," Stephen Rubin, Henry Holt's president and
publisher, said in a statement. "I can think of no one better
than Bill O'Reilly to write this story in a way that has never
been told before."
O'Reilly revealed some hints about the book during his
television show on Wednesday.
"My co-author, Martin Dugard, and I have uncovered some
amazing things about the execution of Jesus of Nazareth and how
it all tied into Roman power," he said.
O'Reilly was accused of including factual inaccuracies in
"Killing Lincoln." The author said the book contained only minor
errors that were corrected.
