After Success With 'Killing Lincoln,' Bill O'Reilly Has His Next Killer Subject TVNewser

Bill O'Reilly has come up with a successful franchise with his "Killing" books, with "Killing Lincoln" being turned into a Nat Geo TV movie and "Killing Kennedy" also optioned for a TV movie.

Now, reports TVNewser, O'Reilly has picked his next killer subject: "Killing Jesus." The book "will tell the story of Jesus of Nazareth as a beloved and controversial young revolutionary brutally killed by Roman soldiers," his publisher, Macmillan, said.

"Given the history, look for 'Killing Jesus' to appear on Nat Geo come 2015," the story notes.

Said O’Reilly: “Jesus Christ has not walked among us physically for more than two thousand years, yet his presence today is felt the world over and his spirit is worshipped by more than 2.2 billion people. His teachings, his legacy, his life as a flesh-and-blood man, and his death created the world in which we live.”
