The Works of Josephus are, I would say, almost essential for the busy Christian pastor to take time-out, if you like, to read and to master. His works form a brilliant part of the background of the formation of our faith which every Minister ought to master and be familiar with. Christianity is not a philosophy grounded only in reason or sense experience, as many are; in addition it is rooted in history. That makes it even more relevant to the Christian believer and powerful towards the sceptic. Every Christian pastor and apologist should have and use a copy.
It is in history that we find the nuggets of life an this book is filled with what you did not know about biblical times and will enhance the picture within your mind! What a blessing to hear more of our storied past, in living color!
