Really awful. Not really history at all, but religious, mostly Christian bombast and polemic. You can tell right away just from looking at the table of contents that all this blather is from a Christian rather than a Jewish or even neutral perspective because no Jew worthy of the name would EVER include the apostle Paul in a book of "Jewish heroes," let alone call him "SAINT Paul." If you're interested in actual history, you'll waste your time listening to this book. What is more, the reader is typical of the kind of dreadful nonprofessional reading that unfortunately renders much of Librivox's content essentially unlistenable, and thus a waste of the readers', the listeners' and Librivox's time and effort.
