I loved this series of king Hezekiah thru Manasseh and Joshua. There were 5 books written by Lynn Austin. My friend got me started with the first 3 and then after she had read the 4th one she gave it to me and I had to order the 5th to finish. It is a very good read on biblical characters.
The series 'Chronicles of the King' should be made into a movie! I could not read this book quickly enough. This was exciting stuff. I almost went into a time of mourning when I realised this was the last book of the series!!Once again from the historical point of view the book (and the whole series) was fascinating and so accurate. The text and the characters were easy to engage with and were both thought provoking and challenging. I certainly read these parts of the Old Testament with new eyes! Thank you Lynn Austin. Please write some more...soon!!!
