I started to read this series after being recommended to by a friend. This series is amazing. It's historical fiction about the life of King Hezekiah and his family. It's biblical history come to life. I was totally hooked and could not put these books down.
I love how the author uses scripture and brings the Old Testament to life. I truly felt like I was a part of the story. Austin connects you with the characters and their lives so easily. You feel their pain, excitement and fear.
I did read through Kings and Chronicles in the Bible to compare and Austin does a great job of telling the true and also historical story. She did her research and it shows. Impressive.
I was sad to finish the last book, I wish it would have kept on going. But it did stir a desire in me to read the Word of God and find out more for myself!!
These books are fabulous as everyone else says. I learned so much. God has no grandchildren and these books show that so clearly. I bought these as e-books, but am now seriously considering buying them as printed books so that I can mark them up or lend them out!
These are the first books I read written by Lynn Austin. I have now read everything of hers I can get my hands on! Love her writing style but more importantly I love how she makes the Word of God come alive! I will never look at these Bible characters in the same way. The history of the time period is described so vividly. I would recommend these books to anyone who wants to be stirred and go deeper in their walk with the Lord!
