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.
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!
I enjoy the Classics and books about Christians and Church history. I also like books about the Civil War. My other hobby is knitting.
These biblical fiction books are excellent. If you know the Old Testament, these books really bring those historical scenes to life. I plan to read them all!
Reminded me of an adult version of the bible CDs I had as a kid. Would be great as an animated movie. Not my favorite but I'm still a BIG Lynn Austin fan. Narrator was quite skilled as well.
I AM AN AVID BIBLE READER AND FOUND PORTIONS OF THIS BOOK NOT IN SCRIPTURE. ALSO FOUND PARTS OF THE BOOK VERY IRRITATING FOR REASON OR ANOTHER AND HAD TO FAST FORWARD THROUGH PARTS OF THE BOOK. AGAIN THE BEST PART OF THE BOOK WAS THE NARRATOR. I WILL NOT BE LISTENING TO THE OTHER TWO BOOKS IN THIS SERIES.
