From detailed, convincing portraits of John the Baptist, Pontius Pilate, Herod, Jesus himself, and other key figures, to the Jewish and Hellenistic leaders often ignored in scripture, Who's Who in the Age of Jesus is a critical, in-depth look at one of the most tumultuous eras in human history.

Don't buy this! Unless you like to listen to someone reading the dictionary, then avoid this one. I vary rarely write a review, but this one cries out for a warning. There are lots of dates, and the reader reads EVERY date. Every time a person or event occurs, the reader reads the date. And there is no cohesiveness. Characters are described in alphabetical sequence. And the reader refers to photographs and other images that obviously we don't get to see. This actually sounds like a book I'd like to read, but listening to it was a waste of a credit.
