Colourful characters and strange stories are all contained in the Old Testament but how do they fit into history? Here you will discover 450 years of the Kings of Israel and Judah; the author places each king in his own time and place, pointing out ways a particular king either feared or did not fear the Lord, and what were the consequences. He also involves the contribution of various prophets sent by the Lord to speak to these kings. The final chapter explains how the kingdom of God still functions even although the reign of the kings is over. This is an interesting subject matter which has been uniquely covered. it includes a chart providing a helpful timeline of the kings.
