As a student of history I was interested in the new Beck book Miracles and Massacres and was wondering if anyone had read it yet and if it was good history.
I am half way through and finding it very informative and interestingly written. It is well written in chronological order almost like a series on TV. It reads like a novel, which I think good history should. But, even though some would say conversations and sidebar incidents can’t be written as non-fiction there are extensive details at the end that explain the research that went into each chapter. I’m recommending it to everyone.
I hadn’t even heard of it until your post. Most of the reviews on Amazon are outstanding sounds like a great book.
It has a little known story about Athens, TN in it. I love history!
Update. IMO, Beck’s book bring’s historic moments alive — an essential for today’s audience who seem to have the attention span of a gnat. I really appreciated the caveats in the back of the book. What did you think about “The Battle of Athens”?
I started reading parts of it. It seems like a neat little book. Loved the Story about Athens.
Also, My nephew started reading it and he loves it. He is a junior in High school. Not a Public High school but a Christian based school where he gets very good grades.
