The young King Josiah had sought to re-establish the authority of God’s Word over the governance of the southern kingdom of Judah. Sadly, after Josiah’s death, where this story of the Last kings of Judah continues, his son’s, Jehoahaz and Jehoiakim, and the latter’s son, Jehoiachin, failed to uphold Josiah’s example. As a result, the people of Judah were gradually drawn further away from God, succumbing to the worship of foreign idols.
Ultimately, the last king of Judah, Zedekiah, was installed by a foreign king. God’s people were now ruled by a puppet-king, appointed by the ruler of Babylon, a city synonymous with sin and rebellion. The Last Kings of Judah (Vol. 2) reveals a nation seemingly unable or unwilling, despite the instruction and admonition of Daniel, Jeremiah and Ezekiel, amongst other great men of faith, to arrest its spiritual and political decline.
How and Why had God’s people fallen so far, just 200 years after King Solomon? And what of the Messianic line that God had promised through King David? Read The Last Kings of Judah (Vol 1 & 2) and join Rev Yeo as he unravels the answers to these questions and the lessons they have for us today.
Review & Commendation

The Last Kings of Judah - Volumes 1 & 2. This type of book indeed fills a need and gives an exceptionally clear view of the history of the Hebrew monarchies. I wish I had had a copy of those opening diagrams while I was at London Bible College (LBC)! The books should be on every minister’s book-shelf, so I hope that the publisher will sell it widely!
I imagine the LBC library would welcome such literature as yours, because as far as I can make out, there is nothing quite like them in the Christian book shops here.
Your recent book “Jerusalem Under Other Kings” is FAR deeper and more explicit than anything we got at London Bible College. Formerly I long to have help for my reading of the Old Testament.*
The timelines, maps, diagrams and pictures are immensely helpful and interesting;- Your style is readable and accessible to the lay person. You add interesting details that are missing from commentaries, and you draw important Biblical and pastoral lessons in your writings; Your work will be a good resource for understanding a big part of the Old Testament, which unfortunately remains hazy for many Christians. -- Mr Liew Cheng San the pastoral staff of Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church, English service.
