TimAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5A must haveApril 6, 2016TimAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This work of history though not a part of scripture is well written as one might expect from a historian of Josephus's caliber,and was well translated by William Whiston.
Josephus is very matter of fact whilst commenting on what we know as the old testament while also adding depth to those subjects.
This is an in depth book is well worth the read and a good investment for those looking for an outside witness to the Bible.
I find it also to be easy to understand and read there are a few nice gems in this book and I would suggest it to anyone looking to add life to their view of Biblical events.

Rev Robert WestAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Not to be Ignored.July 12, 2013Rev Robert WestAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The 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.
