Review: Unveiling the Kings of Israel by:David Down

Unveiling the Kings of Israel
About the Book:
Unearth the history of the small nation of Israel - the troubled and devastating periods of loss and exile - once lost to time. Far from being a book of myths, the Bible is an amazing historical record, and each year, more archaeological discoveries continue to prove its validity and significance. Follow the intriguing clues found buried in ancient cities, on the walls of early monuments, and in the written records of our world's oldest civilizations. Walk the ancient streets, explore the distant temples, and unearth the compelling history that continues to resonate with the world today.

My Review:
 Learning about the Kings of Israel is pretty pertinent information when studying the Bible. It helps you identify the time period as well as learning more about each unique individuals that God used throughout the Bible and how He used them. This is information that I feel will be beneficial to my children. So my husband and I have tried looking for and finding books such as these that would help and enhance our children's Bible study.

 The Bible is an instruction book on life and how it should be lived but many people fail to see its cultural and historical significance. The author is able to start from the beginning and work his way to the Dead Sea scrolls. He offers us complete explanation of several dynasties during that time as well as many facts and extraordinary photographs of different artifacts. Within its 169 pages my son has an even more in depth study of the Bible and learned the history behind Israel's kings and how God used them to do a mighty work for His people.

 We are using this book as part of earning high school credit in our Biblical Archaeology study. In the study we learn more about the Bible than ever imagined. Not only history but science and overall religious study that will help my son have a further knowledge of the Bible he uses every day. That's a good thing! It is priced at $23.99 as a hardcover book but is also available for download at $9.99. This book alone will not work on its own as a curriculum you will have to add things with it. It is a great go along book and it's full of interesting facts. Master Books makes great products that will give our children a well rounded education.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review through my participation as a Master Book Mom and by Master Books.
