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
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 description of King Hezekiah's reign and the people involved in it is superb. It is an absolute must read if you have studied the Bible and enjoy imagining the fine details that Austin beautifully filled in for us. She skillfully combines the acuracy of Scripture with the fictional creation of "the rest of the story."
really excellent. bright me into the world of scripture and bright it alive. I'll be listening to all the books again.
So far this has been a great series. It fills in what everyday life would have been like in the times of the Kings of Judea. Well written!
