nahoo5 Stars Out Of 5Josephus at its bestOctober 10, 2015nahooQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An 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.

Glen Rose5 Stars Out Of 5October 30, 2009Glen RoseClear and to the point from a respected historian. It's great for interested readers who got bogged down in the full-length version.
Kenneth Hasekamp4 Stars Out Of 5October 21, 2008Kenneth HasekampBorrowed 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.
