With a newfound faith in the one true God, King Hezekiah leads his nation into reform and revival, bringing God's blessings and renewed prosperity. But not every member of his court is pleased with the king's 'religious fanaticism.' And when Hezekiah stops paying tribute to Assyria, opposition to his leadership mounts. As Hezekiah seeks to obey God in every aspect of his life, he discovers that the Law forbids him to take multiple wives. He chooses Hephzibah. Their God-given love flourishes, but even here Hezekiah's faith will be severely tested. The king's precarious hold on the throne of Judah reaches critical proportions when the Assyrians invade the northern nation of Israel. A holocaust ensues, inciting ever closer to Judah and Jerusalem. One Israelite family escapes to Judah, including the young woman who just might carry the critical information Hezekiah needs to augment Jerusalem's defense. But with the Assyrians on the march, and his fortifications no match for their strength, can anyone really help? Paper.
