Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back up copy 4 Jan 2013
By Gordon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I use this Kindle version as a back up copy to my paper back so that I can keep reading whilst on the move. It's a good copy with very few mistakes in the text. However, I need to make lots of notes when reading this so the kindle version for me isn't as good as the real thing. But thats only my opinion because of the way I am reading Josephus in tandem with other material sources.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Josephus 17 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I originally bought a paper copy of this book 30 years ago, and am delighted to be able to get hold of it as an ebook.
It's not only the reference always quoted for Jesus living in Palestine at the relevant time, but it's actually got some great stuff for the time in the area and in Rome where Josephus ended up as well - one of those must-have references for a time and place in history if you ever want to understand about it or write realistically in the era.

It is a very important book and I learned many good things form it. Here in Romania are not published such books and I am very glad I bought such a book.
