    After my unfortunate experience with the awful edition published by Red Sea press, I bought this edition This edition is published by a publishing company specialising in ecclesiastical history.The edition had few notes and is the Budge translation, but at least they didn t lie to me about the contents and the translation.

    A deep and inconspicuous detail of the fall of the tribes of Judah and the manner with which the holy law was made perverse by the Roman empire and the spiritual reasons for the west oppressing the African Zion
