Gods and Kings - Book Review

"Gods and Kings" WOW, What an Awesome, awesome read! I was held captive from the beginning and this book did NOT disappoint!  The story of King Ahaz, Zechariah, and King Hezekiah told in a way that is believable, heart wrenching, captivating, and all consuming! I did not want to put this book down.  I guess it helps that the story is a fictionalized adaptation of a period in the bible.  I can very much see the story going the way this book was written.

When the bible said, "Hezekiah was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years. His mother’s name was Abijah daughter of Zechariah. He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, just as his father David had done. In the first month of the first year of his reign, he opened the doors of the Temple of the Lord and repaired them" (2 CHRONICLES 29: 1– 3 NIV). Who knew what an incredible ride this story would be! I moaned, I cried, I cheered! This is an excellent read for those who read the bible as well as those who do not. 
An amazing book by Lynn Austin. It will leave you saying, "WOW...just WOW!
