This book shows has God has rewarded Hezekiah's faithfulness with great wealth and power. But the one thing the king does not have is an heir to the throne. His wife, whom he loves, takes forbidden measures to try to become pregnant and the results will lead to heartache and deep sorrow for this couple. Hezekiah will make wrong decisions, trust ungodly wisdom and face near ruin. With all that is going on in his kingdom; the Assyrians approaching to destroy all that he has, can Hezekiah truly trust in God and learn true forgiveness.

I appreciate how the author makes the history from the Bible at this time come alive. It makes one also appreciate the goodness of our God and His ability to defeat the enemy if His people would just learn to follow His sovereign plan and trust in Him, not in chariots or man. ( )

The whole series was very educational and interesting. Read them all for a great perspective on the days of Manasseh and Hezekiah. ( )
