the title doesnt do it justice!,
This review is from: Chronicle of the Old Testament Kings: The Reign-by-Reign Record of the Rulers of Ancient Israel (Chronicles) (Hardcover)
I had expected this book to just cover those individuals in the book of Kings; in fact it's a useful accompaniment to most of the Bible, covering as it does the Ancestors (Abraham-Joseph), the Exodus, the Judges, Kings of the United Monarchy and those of Israel and Judah, before looking at the Exile, under the Persians, Ptolemies, Seleucids and the Hasmonean Dynasty. We even enter the era of the New Testament, with Roman rulers up to 70 AD.
Illustrations throughout bring the narrative to life; maps, photos of the land, reproductions of pictures of Biblical events, from those on ancient texts to more recent works, artefacts of the time...
Interesting and informative
