Publisher's Summary

The king's sudden death leaves his son Manasseh as the new ruler. Overcome with sorrow, Manasseh is angry toward God and begins a reign of terror that shocks the kingdom. His own insecurity prompts the death of his closest advisors, dividing the faithful in two. Barely escaping the carnage, his best friend Joshua suffers the excruciating loss of his family and plans revenge.

Acclaimed author Lynn Austin has won three Christy Awards for her historical fiction.

    Story
    "History made alive. I was there."
    Would you listen to Faith of My Fathers again? Why?

    I could not put this book down. One of the real beauties of this book was the step by step
    telling of how Manasseh was seduced into total and complete idolatry.


    What other book might you compare Faith of My Fathers to and why?

    All of the books in Austin's series of the kings.


    What about Suzanne Toren’s performance did you like?

    I liked the pace and the not over the top dramatization.


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

    Joshua's interaction with Rabbi Gershom. The Rabbi explained that you have to ask Yahweh the right question to get an answer from Him. I felt as if I was on holy ground as the Rabbi taught Joshua. The character Zeri was clever and his twisting of the Tora was convincing and eerie.


    Any additional comments?

    "Great story"

    My only difficulty with the narration is the way some chapter endings roll right into the next chapter without stopping. But it's not that bad and it's the only negative thing I have to say about the book.

    The plot was engaging and the prose was inviting. The characters really felt real. Loved it.

    Excellent. This series has inspired me to deeply study these lives in the Old Testament and how they struggle with faith and trusting God continually just as we do

    "A True Winner"

    Lynn Austin not only writes in a captivating manner, but her ability to weave an interesting story that is also historically sound makes this a fascinating and entertaining experience. Once again, Suzanne Token delivers an outstanding performance.

    "Amazing"

    If time had allowed I would have listened to this entire book in one sitting. The performance is breathtaking. I was on the edge of seat and in many moments, yearning to worship God.
