Essential Reference
3 stars By Bis, Jun 28 2017
Unlike the older Whiston translation- this updated and expanded translation makes this invaluable work highly accessible and comprehensible. The format is easy to read and well laid out. Might have been better to have the photos in the appendix. Colour photos accompanying the text would have been a bonus but not to be.
The paperback edition is value for money especially on special so no complaints.Obviously this is no ordinary history book and certainly not a novel to sit and read in one go. For serious Bible students this edition brings all five works of Josephus into one book cross referenced to Loeb. Would recommend it.

2 stars By Jacqui, Sep 24 2012
The additional study material is poor - all black and white photographs with shadows. Not professional photographs as they contain major shadows in the photographs, and this is even worse when the photos are black and white. The black and white photographs are what you would expect to find in the days of ancient printing! This book is sub-standard and does not live up to the quality that you would expect today. The print is quite small and fine - like you would see in a bible and not the average text book. The introduction by Paul Maier says that he has used the Whiston translation of Josephus which is lacking because it does not use the Loeb numbering system - but he has amended the numbering system to reflect the Loeb. Yet he still says that better translations of Josephus are St John Thackeray, Ralph Marcus and Louis H Feldman - yet he has not used these translations himself. Why would a scholar tell you he has used a less inferior translation and not what he deems is best? So he has used a less desirable translation, and the additional maps and pictures are utterly useless being in the black and white and not colour, that they would better have been omitted all-together. A very disappointing purchase. Obviously this was purchased online! Had I seen the pathetic photographs - would not have purchased it. My husband says the photographs are poor quality because there is too much contrast and that is why the pictures are unrecognisable, and the features indistinguishable.
