NEW YORK, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- U.S. author and Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly is writing "Killing Jesus: A History," announced publisher Henry Holt and Co.

The follow-up to his best-sellers "Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot" and "Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever" is set for release Sept. 24, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Frequent O'Reilly collaborator Martin Dugard is co-writing "Killing Jesus," an account of the death of the founder of Christianity.

"Jesus Christ has not walked among us physically for more than 2,000 years, yet his presence today is felt the world over and his spirit is worshiped by more than 2.2 billion people," O'Reilly said in a statement issued by Holt Wednesday. "His teachings, his legacy, his life as a flesh-and-blood man and his death created the world in which we live."
