A compelling adventure that illuminates Egyptian Assyrian and Israelite ancient culture A fun read for children that neither avoids nor indulges in the practice of war in that timeParents should be advised this is historical FICTION and teach it as such Particularly in regard to the main character an egyptian pharoah very little is known of him Reading the author s note at the end will help to clarify the line between fact and fiction but also spoils some of the plotBible believing parents should note the main character is not Hezekiah but an Egyptian pharoah As such he prays to numerous god s for help at various points While he is intrigued by the Israelite God he clearly makes no allegiance to Him

review God King A Story in the Days of King Hezekiah Living History Library 107 Om he will fight the mighty Assyrian Sennacherib promising alliance or Hezekiah the Jew who trusts in Yahweh A novel inspired by research of the historical King Taharka and period Includes an introduction with home education suggestions. God King is written by Joanne Williamson and is the second book I have read from Bethlehem Books The first one I read was Hittite Warrior by the same author Like Hittite Warrior God King is part of their Living History Library series This book however takes place in the year 701 BC during the twenty fifth dynasty in Egypt also known as the Kushite dynasty For perspective on this time in history Sennacherib was king of Assyria and Hezekiah was king of Judah during this timeThe story begins with peril and excitement A young boy Taharka is on a crocodile hunt with his uncle Embutah and some slaves Suddenly a crocodile attacks and severely injures one of the slaves Using his uick thinking and medical skills he has studied Taharka is able to save the man Normally this kind of heroism would be applauded However Taharka is no ordinary boy He is the son of the pharaoh who is considered a god in Egypt Touching a slave was a tabu and made young Taharka unclean Even though he was one of many children of the pharaoh and not even a particularly important child he still knew he would be punishedlittle did he know what his punishment would beTaharka s punishment came swiftly The pharaoh was dying but before he died an ancient ritual must be performed to choose his successor Everyone Taharka included thought it would be the older boy Shabataka Shabataka was groomed nearly his whole life to become the next pharaoh In a cruel twist of fate Taharka was chosen and his punishment was that he must become the new pharaoh To him this felt like being forced to live in a cage a prison sentence if you will With his uncle Embutah and brother Shabataka as his guides years pass and Taharka begins to get used to being pharaoh He still doesn t like all the duties that come with it nor does he feel completely safe with the ever looming threat of Assyria to worry aboutI won t give too many details away but the action picks up midway through the book when Assyria threatens to attack Judah and Taharka must decide whether or not Egypt is to assist them or not This was a well researched and well written book If you look on Wikipedia you will see that the names are accurate to this time and the same holds true for the Bible as you can find reference to Taharka and Assyria in both 2 Kings 19 and Isaiah 37 In the past few months I have grown to love the writing of Joanne Williamson I wish I had discovered her as a child but will make sure my children discover her I also hope Bethlehem Books will continue to print some of her other works as well
