Jay A. Wilcoxen5 Stars Out Of 5September 13, 2008Jay A. WilcoxenThis is a beautifully produced book. The text is rather old (1979; F.F. Bruce died in 1990), but it is mostly solid work. The illustrations are a delightful enhancement. As I browse through the large volume I keep stopping to absorb one of the color shots of Palestinian life, etc. Fine work!
