The fifth book of multiple Christy Award winner Lynn Austin’s Chronicles of the Kings series, Among the Gods is a stirring tale of faith and forgiveness.

Fleeing King Manasseh’s tyranny, Joshua leads the faithful remnant to their new home in Egypt. But as years pass, Joshua’s desire for vengeance becomes an obsession. Blinded by hatred, he makes rash decisions, placing his loved ones in jeopardy.

Amid Joshua’s turmoil comes an unexpected awakening of love—a love that burns so intensely it draws him from the dark inner seclusion where he often retreats. But what will it take for him to grasp the great love his Heavenly Father has for him—and for the chosen people of Judah?

    " I really enjoyed this series, but the last book dragged a little. Some things that were in this last book seemed repetetive and drawn out just to make the story longer! It was interesting to go back in the Bible and actually read in Corinthians what happened. I thought Lynn Austin did a good job telling the story from King Ahaz to Mannaseh! "

    " Way too much focus on the fictional characters compared to the first one or two. Was about to give up on the series after book four, but read the Bible account on Manassah and figured I would give book 5 a chance. But she didn't focus enough on Manassah for my liking. "
