God King

By: Joanne Williamson


(1 customer review)

A novel inspired by research on the historical King Taharka and his period.

Product Description


A never-before published tale by the author of the best-selling Hittite Warrior, carries the reader back to Ancient Egypt and biblical Jerusalem. It is 701 B.C-rule of the Kushite dynasty in ancient Egypt. Young Prince Taharka, a very minor royal son, succeeds unexpectedly to the throne of Kush and Egypt-a divine rulership.

It’s not long, however, before a treacherous plot pushes him into sudden exile and into the hands of Amos, an emissary of King Hezekiah seeking help against the Assyrians. Posing as a medical assistant, Taharka journeys with Amos to Judea where he encounters two kings in conflict.

His true identity suddenly uncovered, he must choose with whom he will fight-the mighty Assyrian, Sennacherib, promising alliance or Hezekiah, the Jew who trusts in Yahweh.

This novel is set in Egypt/Judea, 700 B.C.

    I read this book aloud using the Beautiful Feet Books curriculum (Intermediate, Ancient history) and wanted to write a review because the author did a great job melding together so many characters from history into this novel. The story is about a Pharaoh, named Taharka (I had to look him up, but the background research I did was fascinating), Amos the prophet, King Hezekiah, and the Assyrian king Sennacherib, and has the pool of Siloam in the story, as well.
    This is the second “Bethlehem Books” published novel we’ve read, and it won’t be the last. The quality of writing is good, and the historical aspect is top-notch, along with a lot of action and interest in the plot and characters. I gave it four stars as I felt it wrapped up a bit too quickly but otherwise excellent story!
