Mysterious People of the Bible: In the Light of History


I have read the book Mysterious People of the Bible In the Light of History by Stanley J. St.Clair and found the book readable, enjoyable and that the author used a balanced approach attempting to explain the enigmas in the Bible by shining the light of history on these enigmas. I have studied prehistory and religion intensively and thought that Mr. St.Clair used historical references to make biblical episodes more clear to the lay reader. He uses Josephus more than anyone I have ever seen, which I thought excellent. He also attempted to weave DNA test results and population genetics into the theological explanation, which I also thought was an excellent approach to explain the Bible. I really thought that Mr. St.Clair wove a beautiful tapestry of his subject, using numerous historical references to try and explain biblical stories. Herb Jamieson San Antonio, Texas
