Item Description...
Overview
Location: Asia, Egypt/Judea Time Period: Classical Antiquity (1000 B.C. - 500 A.D.) Egypt/Judea 700 B.C. 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. A novel inspired by research on the historical King Taharka and his period.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent historical fiction  Oct 4, 2007
"God King" is a very enjoyable and readable historical fiction account of the early reign of Taharka, Pharaoh of Egypt whose dynasty originated in the kingdom of Kush in present-day Sudan. Young Tarharka is one of the many sons of Shabaka, God King of Egypt. He is neither the eldest nor the most accomplished, but the succession falls to him nonetheless. However, there are schemers in Egypt keen to take advantage of a young king's inexperience. Worse, the mighty Assyrian Sennacherib is gathering his power to the north. Only the Hebrew king Hezekiah holds out against the Assyrians.

In Taharka, the unwilling Pharaoh, Joanne Williamson has created a very sympathetic character. He is naive and trusting at first, yet learns to be strong, resourceful, and merciful. The melding of the scant historical record of the time with the Biblical account of King Hezekiah is skillfully done and the reader truly does get a feel for the time and place.

Overall, this book is a good read for young folks (say, 10 and up) and adults as well. I particularly liked the fact that the book was set in a historical period that is not well studied by your typical 12 year old. Hopefully, it will spur some interest in ancient history among the young. The book is also notable because though Taharka is Black, race never becomes an issue as it often so tediously does in more contemporary fiction for young people. For this reason, I almost hesitate to bring up the subject at all. Let it suffice to say that if more fiction were written from this perspective--where a Black main character is portrayed positively and the other characters are good or evil not based on their race but on their actions--race relations in the real world might actually improve.
 
Wonderful Historical Fiction  Jul 19, 2007
An excellent resource for learning ancient history of Egypt, Israel and Assyria in the Old Testament context. My children of primary school age enjoyed this as a read-aloud.
Would be improved with a pronunciation guide.
 
Christian homeschooling parents and kids loved it!  May 18, 2007
My kids--ages 8 and 6--listened with rapt attention and begged for more. The story was not just fun but helped draw a picture in my children's minds of what life was like at the time and placed other historical facts in context. We were sad when it ended! Though the book is probably written for older readers (10 and up), I recommend it as a read-aloud for children as young as early elementary, if they are able to listen attentively to a long story line. We had a great experience with this and other historical fiction by Joanne Williamson.
 
Great Historical Fiction for Parents and Children  Aug 10, 2006
God King is a wonderfully exciting and educational book. I and both my two children (a boy,12 and a girl, 10) enjoyed the plot-line. We have enjoyed several of Joanne Williamson's novels and have never been disappointed. Sometimes the history of the Old Testament can get a little dry, but Williamson really brought it to life. My children and I came away with a better context and knowledge of the times of Hezekiah and the culture of the Israelites.
 
By a ten year old boy  Dec 2, 2005
This was a cool book. It is about an Egyptian prince who was'nt as special as the other princes. But then he becomes a Pharoh and a so called god. But then his brother take's over the kingdom. Then Taharka left for Canaan with his friend Amos. This was no vacation. Because if they were caught they would be killed. He also meets up with two kings, the first king is Sennacherib of Assyria, and the second one is Hezekiah the king of the Jews. He has to chose which of them to join. Later he joins the Jews and King Hezekiah. It was a great story that will thrill you from beginning to end.
