Topic - Mansfield'S "Killing Jesus
Mel Gibson was criticized for the graphic portrayal of the Crucifixion in "The Passion of the Christ," and the cable miniseries smash "The Bible" was criticized in some quarters for its realistic rendering. Neither of these versions, however, comes close to the gripping and compelling account brought to readers in "Killing Jesus," a book by Stephen Mansfield.
"If you are a believer, if you are someone who takes the record as given in Scripture as authoritative and inspired, you need to dive in more deeply," he said. "If you're not a believer, you want to come to the crucifixion from a human, natural perspective that strips away the veneer."
Though the two projects were developed independently of each other, Mr. Mansfield said he isn't worried about taking on the best-selling Mr. O'Reilly.
