Josephus is such a rewarding author from the ancient world. Traitor, Politician and Historian - he's an incomparable source from the Era, to whom we should be super grateful for his efforts and insights.

I'd previously downloaded some of the free Kindle offerings of Josephus, such as "The Life of Flavius Josephus", but it's so much more convenient to have all of his works in one book. Gets my stamp of approval.

Virtually everyone realizes that there are huge benefits that can be gained by reading classical writings, especially in literature, psychology, and history. Classical books are still read today and are considered classical because a large part of society considers them educational and interesting.

We are very fortunate to have this series where we can purchase these books, which would have cost us much money a short time ago, for an inexpensive price, in this case only $1.99. At this price, it pays to buy the books though the internet rather than getting them from the library. It cost more to travel to and from the library and what is borrowed from a library must be returned. In contrast, we are able to keep these books and look at them whenever we choose.

This book contains the writings of the Jewish general Josephus who was captured by the Romans when they destroyed Israel and its temple in 70 CE. Josephus joined his captors and returned to Rome with them. He was friendly with the Roman rulers. He discovered that many Romans knew nothing about Jewish history and religion and decided to write books about these matters. He wrote a history of the Jewish people and a history of the war against Rome. He also wrote other books such as a book “Against Apion” in which he defended Judaism against the mockery of Apion. These books are included in this inexpensive collection.

The collection, as I wrote is excellent, however, and this is no fault of the collection, people need to read Josephus’s writings critically. Because one of his goals was to show that Judaism and Jews are not as bad as some Romans thought, some of “facts’ are not true or are overstatements. This is not only true of Josephus but of all writers, for all people have prejudices.

This the complete works of Titus Flavius Josephus, which made it very useful for me, as most of the other texts available are merely the abridge versions. The standard of translation is superb and the quality of writing is very high.

It is very exciting to come across such a well written translation of a true contemporary of Jesus Christ. He saw a lot in his lifetime and we are lucky enough that he wrote about it for the ages. And luckier still that this accessible and completely unabridged translation exists.

Historians will get much from this incredible resource. Truly an amazing body of work.

If I am correct, this book is about Joesephus' life and how iheturned out to be an accurate account of historic events. You will find him to be a man of honor and his father taught him well. He was a just man and held strongly to the truth of his day. I like biographies and that is what I see this book to be. Many of us rely on his accounts of history but few may really know the man. I think this helped me put things in perspective.
I would have given it 5 stars but I wished there had been more details of his life. Saying that, it is a down-right good read.
