    "The temple is rebuilt."
    What did you love best about Song of Redemption?

    How King Hezzikiah grew to be such a man of God. I loved the push and pull between Shebnah and Eliakim. The stories of the women showed such strength and the willingness to serve others.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I would have preferred a male voice or maybe a male and female for the different characters but it was good.


    Any additional comments?

    Read all 5 books on this topic for a great overview of this time period.

    "If You Liked Gods and Kings, Keep Going With This"

    As I said in my review of Gods and Kings, this book is also a good read for guys as well as for the ladies. I have read the first 3 books in this series, and I have found all three to be well written and very engaging. You won't get bored by these books; that is for sure!

    "Fascinating and Inspirational"

    I won't write a long review since I wrote a long one on the whole series for the first book. This covers Hezekiah's Tunnel and I found it fascinating. Especially to think that something so ancient is still in use today. Amazing. I really enjoyed this book and the ones before and after it. I did find them uplifting and inspirational. I have liked books, two this one, and book three in this series best. Don't think you can go wrong if you are looking for something inspirational to read when you choose this book. I have to admit I'm going to have to go back and read Kings and Chronicles again. I particularly like the bits with the prophet Isaiah in them.

    "Another Excellent Book by Lynn Austin"

    Once again I truly enjoyed this book. Once I started it, I could not put it down. It really makes the Bible come alive for you. Mrs. Austin did a fantastic job on the development of the story from Biblical and historical facts.

    "Better than the first of the series"

    This book was better than the first of the series. The characters were strong and the story complete. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

    "Loved this book, it brings the Bible to life"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, the book stays true to scripture while adding life to the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Song of Redemption?

    When he was trapped in the tunnel in the dark.

    "The Narrator the Best Part of this Book"

    I found this book disturbing in parts. Gruesome. Too gory in part for me. However, it does let you know what it might have been like living in this time period. The narrator did an excellent job reading the various parts. You can feel the empathy, etc. in her voice. After I finish the 3rd book, I probably will not finish this serious.
