Peter Richardson s meticulous study of Herod provides new insight into the man and his family, whose rule shaped the world in which the Christian faith arose. Richardson reveals Herod to be far more complex and important than is generally perceived and demonstrates that an understanding of Herod is vital for any understanding of the relationship between Judea and Rome. In addition to depicting Herod s life, Richardson discusses the legends that grew up around the man- including his responsibility for a massacre of young children in Bethlehem. This book sheds new light on this fascinating and much maligned character.

I'm glad I read this for background in teaching Hebrew school, but I really think that Herod is waiting for a Stacy Schiff or other A-list non-fiction writer to cover the subject. Read full review
