Gods and Kings

Excellent telling of Hezekiah's life from childhood, where he is comforted and taught by his grandfather, former High Priest, Zechariah. His father is Ahaz, the idolatrous King of Judah. Under his reign Judah becomes a vassal state. Hezekiah becomes king with his nation deeply in debt, a corrupt High Priest, and a nation not ready for reform.

Gods and Kings

I throughly enjoy this biblical fiction based on the lives and times of kings of the old testament - and it encouraged me to study the noted scriptures and beyond them. It brings the lifestyle of those days into focus. I was totally absorbed and will remember the lessons of the scripture as I recall this story. It is well written and researched.
I continued to enjoy the 2nd and 3rd books of this series, but can not find the 4th book to continue... Please make it available!

Gods and kings

Very well written. I love reading about OT characters. The only thing I didn't like was the times the children were sacrificed to molech. I couldn't think of anything but that after I read that part. Too emotional for me to read, but also made me understand what it truly was like then. This book helped me see the Bible come to life!
