    "Great story"

    I enjoyed this book. Not only does it tell a great story, but also teaches you lessons about how unforgiveness can ruin you. It would be hard to forgive the things that Joshua forgave, but in the end he was fianlly released from the burned of hatred. No bad language in this book, which I always appreciate.

    "Great story and excellent narration!"

    This book took me on a voyage back in time and thought me many lessons!

    I enjoyed the first book (Faith of my fathers), but this sequal is even better. You definitely do not have to be a strong believer to appreciate the story and after reading it, hopefully be able to forgive more easily!

    Lynn Austin is now my new favorite author!

    "This series is awesome!"
    If you could sum up Among the Gods in three words, what would they be?

    Engrossing, entertaining, enlightening


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    I have over 600 titles in my library and if I had to give up all but one of the book series in my library, this would be the one I would keep.

    "Epic story, well executed"

    I tremendously enjoyed the whole series. gave me a deeper understanding of the stories from the Bible. This book is about King Manasseh (2nd Chronicles 33:1-20, 2 Kings 21:1-18, Jeremiah 15)

    Would you consider the audio edition of Among the Gods to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Among the Gods?

    When the King's advisor Shebnah, finally realized that even with all his vast knowledge he was nothing without God.


    Which character – as performed by Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

    She is awesome with every character she performs. I have a hearing loss, but with her precise diction I didn't have any problems following the story line. I will look for more books that she reads.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several moments when I found myself actually worshipping God and praising Him for His deliverance. My favorite moment might have been when Hezekiah forgave his wife for worshiping idols as she humbled herself before God. It was an awesome picture of how God forgives us.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't stop talking about this series. It has changed the way I look at what is currently happening in our government. I also find myself drawn to praying for Israel and looking for news reports on what is happening is Israel. It has made me take God and His Word and Promises much more seriously.

    Story
    "Not Ms. Austin's best work"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I enjoyed this story, but admittedly it is not based on Old Testament records so doesn't have the same value to me.


    Would you recommend Among the Gods to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe not. Her other "Chronicles of the Kings" stories are better


    What about Suzanne Toren’s performance did you like?

    Very engaging! I follow complicated dialog easily -- not sure why she is so successful.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Austin explains that the story is a fictional expansion of archeologists' findings in Egypt, and thus does have historical value. One of this things I like very much about her other books is that she helps me visualize, and thus remember, the Old Testament stories.
