Following the blasphemy of his father, Hezekiah sits on David¿s throne. He wants to do the right thing for his people starting with a renewed belief in Yahweh and a cleansing of the Temple. However, adhering to the laws of Yahweh is complex and dangerous. The young monarch has enemies who make demands on him....................... Making matters worse the Assyrians are demanding tribute that his country can ill afford though prosperity has begun to return. More critical to Hezekiah, he believes God will protect the Jews though his closest advisors counsel him to pray. When he meets Jerusha, a Jew who fled from Assyrian captivity; he knows he has found his queen. As the Assyrians march closer to Jerusalem, pressure on Hezekiah to abandon the Lord grows, but though he has doubts shared by his frightened spouse, he stays the course........................ SONG OF REDEMPTION continues the fascinating biographical fictionalized account of King Hezekiah (see GOD AND KINGS) trying to return his people to the one God while struggling with his council recommending bowing to the Assyrians instead of Yahweh. Readers will feel they have been transplanted to biblical times as Lynn Austin brings to life Hezekiah trying to stay what he believes is the proper course that Yahweh would expect him to lead his people down. This is an insightful well written biblical biographical fiction that readers will treasure............... Harriet Klausner

This is a wonderful series about king Hekaziah, who for me, is not just a anonymous king in the bible anymore, but a real person who loved and lived for God. Thanks to the author.

Great series so far. This is book 2 in the series and I have done a lot of self-reflection b/c of this book. I am looking at my own faith & relationship w/God. Btw, I admit I was scared at some parts of the story...you will figure out why when you read the book.

What a glorious account of the continuing serious , book two of God's and King's. King Zecchariah must decide if God's instructions and laws governing King's allows for multiple wives . The Assyrians are capturing prisoners and enslaving them and worse. This story introduces us to a new family. Poor people who are flocking into Jerusalem to finally celebrate God's holidays. Mainly Passover. There are also immigrants flocking from everywhere to hide from the Assyrians. Alliances are severed. Will King Zecchariah leave all to God ? Or will he pay tribute. Jerusalem is growing. The problem of water is becoming an issue and new walls need to be added as the city grows and prospers. Will the King get an heir as God has promised the many generations of the House of David ? King Zecchariah 's faith is tested. This is a five star book in a ten star history. The cruel Assyrian military cruelty is very informative in this book. War, romance, and Biblical history combine in these books. I can't wait to read the next one.

In my second time through this book there is even more truths that jump right off the page. It has touched other area of my life where I have not waited for God and have trusted in my own powers. Those times trusting in myself or someone or something other than God, makes that an idol. Either God is big enough for ALL my issues or He is not! He is either God or He isn't. It does not depend on the situation or the circumstances. I have a long way to go to wait on Hiim and make Him first in everything! That is what King Hezekiah and Eliokim, Jerusa and the others had to learn. What a beautifully written book describing this tumultuous time in Israel's history.

Awesome read! This book is just a good as the first one. Continues the story of King Hezekiah as he re-establishes God's laws in Jerusalem. Well written, it will make you examine yourself where your relationship with God is concerned. Just started the 3rd book and am loving it!

I am thoroughly enjoying this 2nd installment of the Chronicles of the Kings series. Both 1 and 2 were very hard to put down. Total page turners. It's wonderful to read stories of the Bible written in a way which is readable for this century.
