Prophets and Kings

When Israel followed God’s plan, they prospered. Sadly, most of their kings led them into national apostasy and ruin. From the splendor of Solomon’s kingdom to their downfall and subsequent captivity, the spiritual journey of Israel is faithfully chronicled in lives of their prophets and kings. God always had His faithful few, from the rebuilding of the temple until the time of Christ. 

Prophets and Kings

About

Prophets and Kings, the second volume in the Conflict of the Ages series, opens with the story of Solomon’s glorious reign over Israel and ends with the nation’s exile and captivity. It traces the history of a favored and chosen people, vacillating between allegiance to God and to the gods of the nations around them. In these pages can vividly be seen dramatic evidences of the raging struggle between God and Satan for the hearts of men and women. Here the reader will find fascinating characters—wise Solomon, fearless Elijah, wicked Ahaz, beloved Daniel, courageous Jeremiah, and many others. Their experiences provide rich lessons of faith and evidences of God’s love and providential care.

Ellen Gould White (née Harmon) November 26, 1827 – July 16, 1915

“Make Christ first and last and best in everything. Constantly behold Him, and your love for Him will daily become deeper and stronger.” Ellen White wrote countless gems like this and many others during her lifetime. In December 1844 at the age of 17, while praying earnestly with friends, Ellen Harmon received her first vision, a supernatural view of God’s people on their spiritual journey to the city of God. Throughout her ministry she continued to have hundreds of visions from God. The counsels and insights she was shown have been preserved in more than 100,000 pages of books, articles, and manuscripts, all written throughout her 70 year span of ministry.

Nineteenth-century women were rarely counted as leading religious figures. Neither were those with a shortened grade school education expected to become best-selling authors. However, Ellen White is known as the world’s most-widely published woman on religious topics. For a woman of her times, she was indeed remarkable, traveling and preaching throughout America, Europe, and Australia. Ellen White wrote dozens of divinely inspired and insightful books on such topics as Scripture, health, relationships, marriage, parenting, education, evangelism, and many other important themes. Her love for Jesus shines through all her writings, especially in her classics, Steps to Christ, The Desire of Ages, Thoughts from the Mount of Blessings, and Christ’s Object Lessons. Her works have changed millions of lives to become healthier, happier, and dedicate themselves to God. Ellen White was a gifted nineteenth-century religious writer, author, and renowned speaker. Her life’s a living testament to what it means to be wholly led by God.
