Four really, really, really good reads!!!!!

Four really awesome life changing reads, three of them by by Lynn Austin and the fourth one by Kelly Minter.

#1: Gods And Kings (2005) Bethany House Publishers
Gods and Kings is the story of King Hezekiah, heir to the throne of King David. When his evil father plots to sacrifice him, Hezekiah’s mother, Abijah, searches frantically for a way to save him. But only two men can help her, and neither of them seems trustworthy. In a time and place engulfed by violence, treachery, and infidelity to Yahweh, Abijah and her son must discover the one true Source of strength if they are to save themselves and their country.
#2: Song Of Redemption (2005) Bethany House Publishers
When King Hezekiah discovers that God's Law forbids him to take multiple wives, he must choose one woman to love. He must also choose to trust God's promises when he decides to rebel against his powerful Assyrian overlords. Hezekiah seeks to strengthen his nation's fortifications by building a tunnel to Jerusalem to hide his water supply. The tension mounts as the Assyrians march closer--and Hezekiah's tunnel remains incomplete. With his officials advising him to submit to the Assyrians, Hezekiah's faith is once more severely tested.
#3: Strength Of His Hand (2005) Bethany House Publishers
God has rewarded Hezekiah’s faithfulness with great wealth and power, but the godly king has no heir. In desperation, his beloved wife takes forbidden measures to ensure fertility. With all that is going on in his kingdom— and with the Assyrians approaching— Hezekiah does not discover his wife’s idolatry until it’s almost too late. Her betrayal cuts to the very core of his being and belief in God. Will his faith sustain him in the face of this deceit, and against an overwhelming enemy?

#4: No Other Gods by Kelly Minter
