    View From a Neboite

    As a person who once lived at the base of Mount Nebo (Arkansas that is), I suppose I am as qualified as anyone else writing a review for this book. I rather enjoyed this when I purchased it several years ago in my study of biblical archeology and then my re-reading recently when I became interested in the Nag Hammadi discoveries and 2nd century manuscripts in general.

    It must be understood that the author - who by the way spent several years in the middle east as a journalist - wrote this book for the average Joe; not the scholar. And as an average Joe, I found it to be a pleasant tour guide through some of the less visited arenas in this part of the globe. We (or most of us) are all well aware that the Bible is not a history book nor it is a consistent geography map as the various writers and various memories strayed from the path on occasion. Bearing this in mind, the actual scratching of the soil leads to some conclusions that leave us scratching our heads.

    Overall, it is a good read and will lead to deeper thought in a plethora of areas that a learned person will want to further explore.

    Well done Amy Dockser Marcus.
