With a long of published sermons to his credit, Dr. Clovis Chappell now choses twelve Old Testament Kings to preach about. A master of graphic description, he nevertheless keeps his imagination in bounds as he draws for us the portraits and biographies of these men of whose lives, In frustration and defeat as well as in triumph, provide so clear a reflection for the lives of modern man. In the end, Dr. Chappell points out, only one thing mattered. How did they stand with reference to the will of God God had, and has, a plan for each life, and a man's life is fulfilled as he seeks and realizes that plan. This is not a book for scholars or preachers, but the average reader will find some inspiration and help.
