I thought this was a very good book. I am not sure how accurate the accounts are. I did look some things up in my Bible as I read this series. I didn't check with the accounts as far as history goes. Some parts of this series are hard to take. I don't like people being killed or the methods they used. I know that is part of history and the world today. As I read this book I thought of all the things that are happening in the world today. How people need to know our Lord Jesus Christ as their personal savior. I am looking forward to the day when He comes for us and there won't be any more killings or wars. I hate all the sin that is in the world today.
Lynn Austin's attention to the details in her research is so evident by the quality of her writing. Even though a reader may know the 'story' from the Bible, Austin has a unique talent to keep the reader mesmerized by the written word on the page. "Among the Gods" is an excellent "read" and a great reminder of God's unwavering love. Hope she will continue with this series, Chronicles of the Kings.
