As time races day by day toward the end of time, billions crowd and jostle each other on this aging planet. Only a few bore names that were known everywhere on the globe. Furthermore, over the full span of time on earth, only the names of a few endure to be recognized even today. Among those are the giants of history whose stories are vividly retold in this book: Solomon, Elijah, Daniel, Queen Esther, Isaiah, and Jeremiah, among many others.
Prophets and Kings is the second in a five-volume set of books that covers all of human history—from the beginning of time, to the present, and into the future. This book begins with the reign of King Solomon and ends just prior to the first advent of Jesus Christ.
However, don’t expect to read here a record of history as perhaps you’ve read it in textbooks. Also, don’t expect the recital of events as you hear of them on the evening network news. For in this magnificent book, we see history as God sees it—not as a series of random and isolated events, but as the emergence of His master plan for those who live on this planet.
Prophets and Kings makes clear that above and beyond and behind everything that happens is the unseen hand of the President of the Universe—the Creator of us all. When so much happens and seemingly makes no sense, it’s reassuring to discover that the President does indeed know what He’s doing.
