Reviews - What do customers think about A Brief Guide to Philo?
Good introduction into Philo Aug 29, 2005
Schenck's introduction to Philo is very helpful to the student/learner who doesn't know much about the Jewish writer Philo. Schenck writes the book well, without being overly complicated to understand. He has helpful blurb blocks for definitions throughout the text and near the end has a quite helpful section of Philo's writings in a "nutshell." One section, in particular, is helpful with the similar patterns of thought of various N.T. writers. Schenck is definitely competent in this field and he thus provides ease for the reader who desires to search out and begin the quest for deeper and further research on Philo. To sum up -- good book, especially before you decide to tackle any or all of Philo's writings.
