Just as a harmony of the Gospels is useful for tracing the life of our Lord Jesus Christ, this easy-to-use book provides the Bible student with a reference guide to the history of the kings of Judah and Israel as preserved in the books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles. Preceding the harmony itself is a complete analytical outline--a concise, sequential table of events that will give the reader a greater understanding and firmer grasp of the history of Judah and Israel. Students of Scripture will find this harmony and its accompanying analytical outlines invaluable in gaining a historical perspective that will make the study of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles profitable and rewarding.
