Overview

One of the best known translations of Josephus's work,
translated by William Whiston in 1737

Josephus - An Eyewitness to Christianity
Josephus was a historian who lived from 37 A.D. to about 100 A.D. He was a member of the priestly aristocracy, and was taken hostage by the Roman Empire in the great Jewish revolt of 66-70 A.D. Josephus spent the rest of his life in or around Rome as an advisor and historian to three emperors, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian. For centuries, the works of Josephus were more widely read in Europe than any book other than the Bible. They are invaluable sources of eyewitness testimony to the development of Western civilization, including the foundation and growth of Christianity in the 1st Century.

    A treasure worth having

    The writings of Josephus are well respected in the Chrstian community as reliable and well written. From him we can gain insight into the life of Moses, the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. , and some truly fascinating background on the dispersion of the sons of Noah, the population of the nations of the world and their subsequent renaming by the Greek empire. That's just the start. This is a huge book filled with treasures, get one and dig in.

    As far as the physical volume goes, I can only thank Attic Books for undertaking such a huge project and doing such an excellent job. In a culture where books are becoming a secondary form of information dispersion, It's great to see someone putting out just plain great books. For as large as it is, it's light and easy to carry. The paper is high quality, the binding is solid and the illustrations are truly awe inspiring. Buy this one for your school, church or home library, you won't be disappointed!

    No TOC

    This book would be a much better read if there were a Table of Contents
    to help navigate. As it is, it simply keeps going as one long piece, making it difficult to find the next topic.
