Publisher's Summary

Richard Carrier, Ph.D., philosopher, historian, blogger, has published a number of papers in the field of ancient history and biblical studies. He has also written several books and chapters on diverse subjects, and has been blogging and speaking since 2006. He is known the world over for all the above. But here, together for the first time, are all of Dr. Carrier's peer reviewed academic journal articles in history through the year 2013, collected with his best magazine articles, research papers, and blog posts on the same subjects. Many have been uniquely revised for this publication. Others are inaccessible except through libraries or paywalls. Twenty chapters include his seminal papers on the scandal of Hitler's Table Talk, the Jerry Vardaman microletter farce, and the testimonies to Christ in Josephus, Tacitus, and Thallus, as well as Carrier's journalistic foray into ancient pyramid quackery, his work on the historical and textual errancy of the bible, and more.

    "As advertised..."

    Having read other books by Dr Carrier I approached this one with caution. Another reviewer suggested that it was heavy on the detail, and this s very true. Given that this is an anthology of academic works, this was not unexpected, but it is tough going in patches, going into minute detail when you would prefer more of a narrative. I can see why this is the case, and I enjoyed it, but some chapters are a hard slog - overall I really enjoyed it.

    For those of you who have read Dr Carrier's work on religious topics, there is plenty in here on specific topics in that field. For me, I found some of the stuff on Roman culture, classes and ranks to be quite interesting, mostly because I have read an lot of books on Christianity but not on ancient civilisations. I was hoping to find Dr Carrier's book "The Christian Delusion" on Audible but it is not yet available. Having finished this book and also listened to some of the lectures online i think that many people would be interested in ancient civilisation and technologies.

    "Good Info just not very engaging"

    I quite enjoyed a few of these essays but some of the technical info is just little too dense. It by no means boring, however the exhaustive nature in which he addresses the topics can get tedious about half way in. This would make for a phenomenonally good reference book but I didn't enjoy it as an audio book in the same way I have other nonfiction of a technical nature.
