Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library staff.
Book: Desire of the Everlasting Hills: The World Before and After Jesus by Thomas Cahill
Recommended by: Joseph, Adult Nonfiction Librarian
This book is an interesting look at the cultures, people, languages, and events that shaped the world around Jesus. From the influence of Alexander the Great and the Greeks on the Jews to the personalities and writing styles of Jesus's early followers, many intriguing influences are discussed. While not comprehensive, Cahill's mostly-secular work is both engaging and accessible.
