Reviews

Great book, thanks so much.


(5 stars)

Love this app and content.


(5 stars)

best team effort I have listened to.all the voices did a great job, some of the name pronunciations were not quite right but who could do all those, thanks again


(4 stars)

Some pronunciations of Biblical names of people and places were very off otherwise I would afford this a five star rating. Other than that it was excellent and enjoyable.


(4.5 stars)

The content is fabulous, providing historical insight and interpretation to canonical biblical texts from a first century perspective. The commentary provided by Josephus on common biblical events is a must read for all Bible enthusiasts. The recordings are a bit spotty in quality due to the variety of voluntary voices. However, because the audio book is free of charge, this varied degree of quality is less significant in overall consideration.

very easy read
