    "STRENGHT"

    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.

    "Strong Characters, Insightful Story, Great Message"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended it to many friends for it's terrific message and historical/biblical accuracy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character development is superb.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    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


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    "Good Conclusion to the Trilogy on King Hezekiah"

    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!

    "I love this series"

    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!

    "Good continuation of the story"

    At times the character voices are distracting, but nothing compares with the distraction of poor editing. A chapter will end, but before the last punctuation mark the next chapter is announced without a breath in between. This happens numerous times during the narration. At least once, the last word in the chapter was cut off as the next chapter began.

    "Poor editing"
    Where does Strength of His Hand rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book, and the series, is excellent. The narrator is pretty good, but the editing is poor. There is a long pause between some chapters and with others, more troubling, there is not even a breath between the end of one sentence and the beginning of the next.

    "Gifted writer..Inspiring story"

    Lynn Austin has written another inspiring book which makes the Bible story and characters come to life. It teaches profound Christian principles through very understandable human experiences. It shows the unstoppable heart warming love of a Father God who never gives up on His faulty earthly children!

    "Old Testament Comes Alive"

    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.
