An outstanding translation and condensation of the works of Josephus. "The Jewish War" was especially interesting since these accounts were actually witnessed and experienced by Josephus. The photographs, maps, illustrations, charts, and sidebar discussions greatly enhanced the book. Excellent job, Dr. Maier.
I have gotten much information just from the introduction.I'm early in the book but enjoying it much.I sought to find something by Josephus for many years.Happy to know I can purchase books like these atChristianbook store.
Borrowed the book from a friend. Enjoyed it enough to buy my own copy. Skips much of the entire work to concentrate on those portions holding special interest to Christian students. Really helpful tool, especially for the parts about Herod, fall of Jerusalem and Masada.
