A message of hope from First and Second Kings.

By the rivers of Babylon, in the sixth century B.C., the Jewish people felt like permanent refugees in a foreign land. Israel had undergone captivity once before, in Egypt. This time the people were in exile because of disobedience.

The books of 1 and 2 Kings were meant as an antidote for the sorrow of heart that afflicted their souls. Robert L. Hubbard, Jr. guides you through the maze of Kings and empires, prophets, and priests, that are the subjects of those two Old Testament historical books. In those books, Hubbard says, are "peaks of unbelievable glory and valleys of unforgettable despair."

His study of First and Second Kings and of the chaotic time chronicled in those books is written in an inviting style but with scholarly care. Hubbard applies to our lives today the lessons Israel learned through years of pain, Scholar and laymen alike will appreciate the combination of readability and scholarly investigation that marks this book.
