I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my pastor. She has said she wished she knew more about Josephus' writings because they are quoted in so many references. She thought the book would be too expensive to purchase. However because of your reasonable price plus special discounts, it was very reasonable indeed. She was delighted with it and says she will use it often. I may have to purchase one for myself now just so we can converse on the writings. I am sure it will be too useful for her to loan it to me.

Josephus takes my mind to places and events in this book that I never knew existed. I wish he had included more info about that ' wise man Jesus , if you can call Him a man" I wanted to know more about Jesus and the miracles He did after the resurrection. But nevertheless, I enjoy reading this book. I've lost several nights of sleep just reading it. Hard to put down book.

I was very pleased with this book! I needed it for my homeschool. So many references to Josephus kept popping up in our studies that a really thorough text was required. This book with its updated qualities from the original by Whiston is a classroom MUST.
