    "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)

    "Bringing the Bible to Life"
    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.

    "Wonderfully written story of mercy and forgiveness"

    In this, the final book of Lynn Austin's 5 book series called the Chronicles of the Kings, I was again deeply moved by the author's ability to create a story that amazed me with intrigue, details that were so beautifully worded to aide the reader in feeling the struggles, emotions and joys of the characters. Then she guided the characters as well as the reader with quotes from God's word to gave the answers and guidance needed to live life according to His perfect will. Repentance, mercy and forgiveness were b

    "Just excellent"

    I loved this whole series. It helps the reader picture the events presented in the book of 2 Kings in the Bible. I loved the way it portrayed Joshua's relationship with his rebellious son.

    "I love all the books"

    This is the 5th book and I wish there was more.
    I have to say that each book has its own pleasures and twists and turns.

    I love the character development the main characters.

    I love that even though this is fictional you can tell she's done research on the history.

    I did not like Suzanne Toren narration though.

    I felt like her voices were not consistent the continuity was lacking. and she didn't have any variation 2 voices the only voice that I think that I really enjoyed was when she did the Egyptians voices.
