    Carta Jerusalem keeps finding ways to put their treasured maps into the hands of Bible students. This book is especially creative in that regard. Most of us are very familiar with Josephus and here we have the popular translation by William Whiston of Josephus The Jewish War. What makes this classic new and vibrant is the Carta maps profusely interspersed at appropriate places in the text.

    An added jewel in an introduction by noted New Testament scholar R. Steven Notley that really helps us get hold of the life, writings, and importance of Josephus.

    Pictures of places add even more as does a users guide for The Carta Bible Atlas and The Sacred Bridge, which are the best in the field and are loved by many of us.

    This is a publishing event and a real asset to have!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
