King David's life and rule had been marked by flaws as well as graces. yet throughout, God remained steadfastly faithful to his covenant with the Israelites and allowed David's line to continue. Thus, David's son, Solomon, embarks on the mission of building the temple in Jerusalem to house the Ark of the Covenant and sets the stage for future Israelite leaders.
Fr Anderson continues down the line of Israelite rulers and explores the rise and fall of kings, tribes, and military leaders, including the great prophets Elijah and Elisha. This volume takes us through and beyond the Babylonian captivity and includes an extended reading of the Mosaic Law. As we learn more about the rules that governed our ancestors in faith, we gain insight into the true meanings of devotion, obedience, worship, liturgy and prayer.
