Siege of Jerusalem By Titus
By Thomas Lewin. If you dread slogging through The Jewish Wars by Josephus with its archaic English and confusing meanderings, Lewin’s book will be a breath of fresh air. It is like a Readers Digest version of Josephus. Concise and easy to read. Great companion book for Ed’s podcasts on the Chronology of the War. Provides an excellent overview of the final days of the siege of Jerusalem (Spring and Summer of AD 70) when Titus employed his four legions against its massive walls. A must-read for anyone wishing to understand why the temple was destroyed and the Jews were dispersed. Trade Paper. 88 pages.
