Israel wanted a king instead of God's perfect plan for them, with Himself as their King. But after Saul, David and Solomon, the nation split in two. 300 years after Solomon, good King Josiah makes a fateful decision in a battle with Egypt, starting an epic adventure that covers the last few years before the Babylonian exile. Kingdoms introduces us to the kings, prophets, and other participants, both royal and commoner, who take part of the story behind-the-scenes. By retelling the stories of past kings and prophets, the lessons of history are reinforced and made real to the characters in the story, for good or ill. Recommended for ages 14 and up.
