Review: Josephus: The Essential Works Full Color Edition

User Review  - Kenneth Hasekamp - Christianbook.com

Borrowed 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. Read full review
