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.
