Reviews - What do customers think about John the Baptizer and Prophet: A Sociohistorical Study?
Excellent solid contribution! Oct 7, 2008
In this book Robert Webb has produced a landmark work that stood on the shoulders of previous research, dug deeply into all the necessary primary materials and has resulted in a comprehensive, in depth, yet accessible and readable volume on John the Baptist. This book, once I found it, became the basis for my master's thesis.
