Nor... More > is it very probable that there will soon be another. The reigns of both these monarchs were stained and tarnished with many vices and crimes, and darkened by national disasters of every kind, and the name is thus connected with so many painful associations in the minds of men, that it seems to have been dropped, by common consent, in all branches of the royal family.< Less

The Expositor's Bible : The Second Book of Kings (Illustrated) By F. W. Farrar
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Ahaziah, the eldest son and successor of Ahab, has been called "the most shadowy of the Israelitish kings." He seems to have been in all respects one of the most weak, faithless, and... More > deplorably miserable. He did but reign two years—perhaps in reality little more than one; but this brief space was crowded with intolerable disasters. Everything that he touched seemed to be marked out for ruin or failure, and in character he showed himself a true son of Jezebel and Ahab. What results followed the defeat of Ahab and Jehoshaphat at Ramoth-Gilead we are not told. The war must have ended in terms of peace of some kind—perhaps in the cession of Ramoth-Gilead; for Ahaziah does not seem to have been disturbed during his brief reign by any Syrian invasion. Nor were there any troubles on the side of Judah. Ahaziah's sister was the wife of Jehoshaphat's heir, and the good understanding between the two kingdoms was so closely cemented, that in both royal houses there was an identity of names—two Ahaziahs and two Jehorams.< Less

More > God and the eventual exile of both Kingdoms. Generally, chapters 8:16-17:41 recount the history of the northern tribes of Israel to the time of their being exiled by the Assyrians. Chapters 18-25 record the history of Judah until the time of their exile by Babylon. The Book is filled with the acts of evil Kings who led Israel astray and caused the judgment of both Kingdoms. Israel was never again a nation until more that 2000 years had passed (1948). What began as a pure vision of a nation solely dedicated and governed by God ended in abject failure.< Less

More > command and Adolph Hitler’s successor. The snapshots were assembled into a photo album by Doctor Lutz Heck, a zoologist, and director of the Berlin Zoo.

Some of the photos divulge his private life with his new wife, Emma Sonnemann Göring, at his home in Obersalzberg, Berchtesgaden. Other pictures disclose his hunting excursions in the Bavarian Alps and Springe, Germany. They are all a unique time capsule from the year 1935 depicting what appears to be a life of normalcy when ironically, the man of contradiction contributed to the inhumanity of Nazi Germany!< Less

Stalin’s Plan for the Expansion of Communism. Book 1: How to Start a World War By Albert Seidel
eBook (ePub): $6.12
(1 Ratings)
Stalin intentionally delivered up his own people and the vast territory of his country to Hitler. He used the leaders of the world community at that time in a subtle and far-sighted blackmail, in... More > which he bargained in advance for conditions favorable to himself in the reorganization of the world after the war. Stalin alone knew that he had a trump card up his sleeve in the form of manpower reserves and a well-functioning military industry, which had been transported into the depths of the country well in advance. Stalin clearly understood that unless he managed to reverse world’s opinion about the USSR — the country that was barred from the League of Nations — he would never sit at the same table with the leaders of the democratic countries. And indeed, it was only after victory at such a price that the USSR became one of the great powers of the UN Security Council with the right of veto, and its successor, the Russian Federation is actively using this right up to modern days.< Less
