Prophets and Kings
White, E. G.
   

Prophets and Kings traces the changes of fortune of a favored and chosen people, torn between allegiance to God and serving the gods of the nations about them.

This book abounds in fascinating character studies: Solomon, whose wisdom did not keep him from transgression; Jeroboam, the self-serving man of policy, and the evil results of his reign; the mighty and fearless Elijah; Elisha, the prophet of peace and healing; fearful and wicked Ahaz; Hezekiah, loyal and good-hearted; Daniel, the beloved of god; Jeremiah, the prophet of sorrow; Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi, prophets of the restoration. Beyond them all rises in glory the coming King, the Lamb of God, the only-begotten Son.
