Gods and Kings is the story of King Hezekiah, heir to the throne of King David. When the story begins we find his evil father, King Ahaz, planning to sacrifice Hezekiah to the god Molech. Hezekiah's mother, Abijah, searches frantically for a way to save him. From there she will try to keep Hezekiah alive in a time and place that is evil, and filled with treachery, and infidelity to Yahweh. Abijah and her son must discover the one true Source of strength and they will, but it will come after much sorrow and false teaching and failure to give Yahweh first place in their lives. This story brought the history at this time from scriptures more alive and easy to remember and understand. It has also made me check out the scripture passages mentioned at the beginning and read them to see see the real story. ( )

Fictional interpretation of the story of King Ahaz. Thought provoking. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. While it is not completely true to the Bible because the author takes a little liberty in dialogue and events, it is a great way to see a completely new aspect of the same stories I've heard my whole life. Great book! ( )

This particular book is based on a bit from the Old Testament.

Prince Hezekiah, of Juda, is living a rather boring princely life. He's the son of the King and his wife, the daughter of the (former) high priest of Yahweh. He gets schooled in Yahweh-ism by his high-priest granddad until the king becomes a vassal to Assyria (and its gods) and imprisons the grandfather (he was busy protesting the altar to the Assyrian gods at the Temple). King then gets his son a "good" tutor, who happens to be an atheist. King gets old and fat, tearing his kingdom apart to serve Assyria. Everyone turns away from Yahweh, cue indirect smiting. King dies. Hezekiah takes the throne. Comes back to Yahweh. Story ends and we are supposed to read what comes next as Hezekiah tries to bring his Kingdom back from ruins.

It would have rated an extra star or two if there had been a lot less Yahweh. There is a lot of bloat that's only about how awesome Yahweh is. Whatevs. My own fault, I know, reading something categorized as christian fiction, but I've read plenty of fiction whose plot was taken from the bible that was less preachy. I like less preachy. Getting too much into the whole god thing takes it to fantasy land, and there's better (and more fun) fantasy out there. ( )
