King Manaseh and his friend Joshua were nurtured together in the faith of their godly fathers, but anger toward God smolders in Manasseh’s heart after his father’s unexpected death, and his insecurity makes him easy prey for the false claims of sorcery and divination.

When Joshua stands up for the truth, the battle lines are drawn, and Joshua must flee his life of privilege. Unable to understand why his boyhood friend has turned against him, and why he must stand alone in the face of such opposition, Joshua comes perilously close to losing his faith.

Can Joshua rescue the faithful remnant from Manasseh’s persecution? Has it all gone too far … or will he rediscover his father’s God?

Faith of My Fathers is a riveting story of intrigue, deception, danger, and suspense.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Moseley | 2/20/2014

    " This is a nice take on what is only about a paragraph of space in the Bible. Set in the days of the Kings of Israel, in this case Manasseh the evil king who sacrificed his first born son, a young man comes of age to lead the remaining faithful priest out of Israel to escape persecution. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami | 2/8/2014

    " This book made me evaluate simple decisions in my life. It's so easy to let a little lie slip in and color our judgement. This book provides a great lesson about why to stay strong in your faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 1/30/2014

    " I loved this book as well. However, it did take me a little while to get used to the character changes. All in all, a great read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenneth Jr. | 1/25/2014

    " I really miss the old king. His son was crazy, but it did show the true evil of sin and how anyone can change the context of the word of God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 12/31/2013

    " I love this series of 5 historical fiction reads dealing with King Hezekiah and his son Manassah. Lynn Austin weaves a great epic story from the Biblical scriptures making it personal. The first book was a little bit slow to get into, but oh my, once you grasp on to the story, you will not want to quit till you finish the whole set from one thru five books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverley McPherson | 12/20/2013

    " Joshua love for his family helped him to take them safely to Eygpt. However his unsurety of the role he have to play to trust in God, be patient with him and continue to havethe faith as his father had was difficult for him. Good follow up from book 3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 12/14/2013

    " This entire series is one of the best series I've ever read. I learned so much from each book. I give the series my highest recommendation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 12/14/2013

    " Book 4 of Chronicles of the Kings series, another I really enjoyed! So much so that I stayed up extremely late 2 nights finishing it. King Manassah, son of Hezekiah, has come to power and his insecurity leads him away from God and into sorcery. He plots against his best friend Joshua and family. I think I read somewhere else that this one might be more fictionalized because of less info on the characters but still fascinating to me to read about. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Will | 11/28/2013

    " I gave up reading the last 30 or so pages. The book dragged out. The entire series could have been done in 2 or 3 books at the most. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Fuller | 11/16/2013

    " I have read 4 out of 5 in the series. They are all good and helpful in understanding what was going on in Judea and Israel with the Kings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 11/6/2013

    " Again, I love having the Old Testament brought home to me, even through fictional characters. I believe Lynn Austin has done due diligence with her research and stays pretty true to the facts and the times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tandy | 10/19/2013

    " This one was so heartbreaking but again I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen. This is one of the best series I've ever read. There was some slight description of pagan lifestyle so this series probably isn't appropriate for teens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nk stOne | 10/16/2013

    " the fourth book in the series of the Chronicles of the kings begins with King Hezekiah's death and centers upon his son King Manasseh and Elkaim's son Joshua .. it is a must read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 10/10/2013

    " The 4th book of the series, this one was very intense and stressful, and I have had to take a break between reading this one and the 5th. I read something light hearted inbetween, because these books are anything but light hearted! :) But still, excellent! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad | 2/12/2013

    " I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. Book Four in a five book series doesn't always hold much promise but this one was good. This series continues to grow my interest in the Kings of Judah. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 1/7/2013

    " The fourth book in a great series..one more and will be done! Really have enjoyed these stories.... "

    " This series of books (this is #4) is a wonderful insight into the old testament stories and really helps personify the kings and people of biblical history. Inspired me to pull my bible & read the real stuff ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Rowland | 9/25/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Gerrand | 5/23/2012

    " Didn't enjoy this as much as the earlier ones in the series but it is worn persisting. And you feel compelled to see how the biblical story is filled out "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helene | 1/11/2012

    " Oh wow! Lynn Austin really pours it on in this book! reads like a soap opera with all the undercover agenda, fears and evils that lurk in a persons heart! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Arrizza | 12/24/2011

    " Book 4, This was a dinner table discussion as my children were studying Biblical, Book of Kings at school, Austin does a great job of tieing history and todays emotional reaction into the story of love faith and hope. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/6/2011

    " This book was hard to get into but once the story line started to come into place I could hardly put it down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 3/11/2011

    " An OK book at best. Seems a little anachronistic at times. "
