I AM LEGALLY BLIND AND ENJOY LISTENING TO STORIES OF FAITH, HISTORICAL CHRISTIAN NOVELS, AND BOOKS WITHOUT SWEARING ESP. USING GODS NAME
WHAT AN EXCITING BOOK. IT GIVES US A GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF THI S ERA IN JEWISH HISTORY AND ITS KING AND PROPHET. THE AUTHOR HAS DONE A LOT OF RESEARCH AND USED PERTINENT SCRIPTURE WHICH IS SO APPLICABLE TO THE STORY LINE. IT WAS A BOOK THAT WAS HARD TO PUT DOWN - EXCITING, SCRIPTURAL, AND INSPIRATIONAL FOR OUR DAY.
A well written chronicle of King Hezekiah. This gripping story had me committed to continue listening until the end. I followed along in Scripture to consider the accuracy and found it to be very close, only embellished with poetic license. The lessons brought out by the author were intense and gave me a greater understanding of the Love of God and the need for a stronger faith.
I also enjoyed immensely the talent shown by the narrator to bring this book to life. She is a gifted woman with amazing voice skills to portray each character and keep the reader engaged. I'm looking forward to the next in the series
I have already recommended it to many friends for it's terrific message and historical/biblical accuracy.
The character development is superb.
There were some flaws in the recording, and rough chapter transitions in this recording that I did not hear in the first two. Hopefully this was just a recording anomaly
This book made me laugh, and it made me cry - it was a very realistic account of the time and the situations with real characters. The people of this story come alive and are very relate-able . As a book about faith in God during trying times, it was easy to identify with each character's struggle to believe and to act and live according to that belief.
As I said in my reviews of Gods and Kings and Song of Redemption, 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!
It is such a fun way to learn so much about Bible history. I learned things I never knew before and enjoyed it all the while. There are 5 in this series and I loved each!
This is my second time around in this book. The first time I read it myself, this time I listened. This series of books are some of the best there is, in my opinion. The author did a wonderful job writing the book, and the narrator did a wonderful job reading it for a me. Thank you very much.
Totally enjoyed this historical novel. I learned so much about Hezzakiah and the Old Testament. I have encouraged friends and family to read Lynn Austin novels.
Please anyone wanting to be blown away about the History of the Jewish nation take these books into a closet an shut the door.
Because you will want to do nothing more once you start.. Happy listening guys . Audible is the best.
This series has brought the Old Testament account of Hezekiah to life and has drawn me deeper into understanding the historical times of the prophets & kings. As I finish each book, my desire is to delve into the next one. My love for Jehovah God has grown as I learn more of His character.
