Publisher's Description

Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer is a thought-provoking exposition of the political and religious developments in the kingdom of Judah during the reign of King Hezekiah, based on a close reading of biblical and extra-biblical sources and the insights from associated archaeological finds. Among the major discussions are: Hezekiah's reform of the Israelite cult--the elimination of rural altars and the centralization of all worship in the Temple of Jerusalem, the introduction of literary prophecy and its social message into Judah, and Jerusalem's deliverance during the Assyrian campaign against Judah in 701 BCE. Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer shows that the Age of Hezekiah was a key stage in the growth and transformation of Jerusalem into the Holy City we know today.



Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer contains full quotation of ancient texts, as well as numerous maps and illuminating illustrations.

    Hezekiah is a worthy focus of study for Old Testament students. Not only is he the greatest king after David, but he is the last great hurrah of Judah. His reforms ran the deepest, his faith was the most clearly on display, and it was all against the backdrop of the turbulent times he lived. This book brings it all alive!

    Mordechai Cogan, a respected Jewish scholar wrote this volume. You may remember his name from writing major commentaries on 1 & 2 Kings in the Anchor Bible Commentary series. I may not agree with every historical conclusion he makes, but his passion for his subject is clear on every page.

    You are going to love the gorgeous photos, fine graphic illustrations, and, of course, those wonderful Carta maps. He explains how Hezekiah eliminated rural altars and brought all worship back to the Temple in Jerusalem. (When Cogan speaks of the Israelite cult he is referring to their uniqueness in the religious world of their times).

    Archaeological data and Assyrian accounts are brought in to enliven the story. What you end up with is a fascinating portrait of Hezekiah and his times that any Bible reader would have to enjoy!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
