This book is written from a secular point of view and assumes some knowledge of the underlying sources in ancient history. I did not agree with some of the author's inferences with regard to Biblical text so I recommend a strong knowledge of scripture prior to reading. However, I found the book overall to provide me with some insight into these ancient civilizations that I did not have prior to reading it. I think I would have benefitted more if I possessed greater familiarity with the Greek historic texts referenced.
