This is book two in a series of five books, and it is a great devotional book. If you are reading through the Old Testament, especially through the prophets and the kings of Israel, this book will clarify a lot of the questions that come up as you read. The book before this is called Patriarchs and Prophets, which is also an excellent resource.

Prophets and Kings opens with the story of Solomon’s glorious reign over Israel and continues through the remaining kings of Israel and Judah including the times of the prophets, and ends with the nation’s exile and captivity. It traces the history of a favored and chosen people, vacillating between allegiance to God and to the gods of the nations around them. In these pages can vividly be seen dramatic evidences of the raging struggle between God and Satan for the hearts of men and women. Here you will read of Elijah, Daniel, Isaiah, and Jeremiah, among others--and you will find the lessons God would have us all learn from their lives.
