An award-winning translation and condensation of The Jewish Antiquities and The Jewish War of Josephus. The historical events take on a brilliant new dimension in this revised edition now with photographs, charts, and maps.
Seasoned students of Scripture as well as those just beginning to explore Bible background will find in this volume and excellent, appealing resource. A very valuable source for all who are interested in biblical history. The book provides a fresh view of Old and New Testament times and reads as easily as a novel. A welcome addition to the tools which provide understanding for both the OT, the inter-testamental period and the NT. An excellent, practical addition for any library. . . . Invaluable for anyone who is interested in the Bible or history. Maier has done something for ordinary Christian pastors and lay people. He's brought the earliest years of the church back to life.--Michael L. Sherer"Metro Lutheran News" (06/03/2004)
