Has anyone read the following book?

"St. Paul the traveler and Roman Citizen"

by Sir William Ramsey


Amazon has the kindle version right now for .99 so I wondered if it was worth taking a chance on.

any thoughts are greatly appreciated!!

This is one of those occasions when I wonder where my copy is.

Life is full of those times.

Be aware that 99 cent Amazon books are often poorly proofed from OCR and lack niceties such as formatting and an active table of contents.

It is really old, William Mitchell Ramsey was one of the greatest archeologists of his time, and this was a classic text, but his time was nearly a century ago, he died in 1939.

Biblical archeology is one of those fields where even the greatest books tend to become obsolete very rapidly.
