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.
