The "Birth" of King Hezekiah
Posted November 12, 2013
I wish more people we read about in the Bible were this fleshed out! Reading this account about Hezekiah and Asa and Uriah... and Isaiah and the other prophets... really opened my eyes and helped me understand the context of their stories. I don't think I ever fully grasped who the prophets were and what their roles were, though not always welcomed by those living around them. I think the author really excelled, also, in showing the emotional toil of the child sacrifices on the survivors and just the destruction in relationships and so forth rippling out from worshipping idols. Clearly well-researched!
While the book may have started off slow, don't let that deter you from reading it! Without the slow parts, the more exciting parts would lack meaning for you. Read it all and enjoy it! I am excited to continue the series.
