Face2Face: Sennacherib

Clive AndersonSKU: F2FSEN767 ISBN: 9781846250767



Sennacherib was once a name to send a chill down spines, yet today, relatively few have heard of him, and even fewer know much about him. Lord Byron immortalized one part of his life in a poem, but there was much more to this man than King and fearsome warrior. Coming face to face with him in this book not only reveals a complex and multi-talented man, but also the formidable enemy that the land of Judah, its king Hezekiah and prophet Isaiah were confronted with at a time of national crisis.

Today, many Christians across the world find themselves faced with situations that appear to be beyond their control. How should they react in such circumstances and what help can they expect to receive? This book, while dealing with real history, also focuses on life in the twenty-first century and gives pointers towards being faithful witnesses of Jesus Christ.

‘Clive Anderson brings ancient history to life. Out of the stony slabs of antiquity, Sennacherib emerges, flesh and blood. Using biblical sources and drawing on his extensive knowledge of archaeology and ancient history, Clive Anderson gives the reader a fascinating insight into the life and times of this notorious Assyrian king—enriching and sharpening our understanding of the biblical text. This book is a must for preachers and teachers and an invaluable aid to Bible study. It is easily accessible scholarship—providing accurate background knowledge, sound biblical exposition and searching application.’
—Rev Dr Jim Winter, Pastor, Horsell Evangelical Church, and author of several books

‘Clive Anderson brings two great passions to bear in the writing of this book. The first is that by filling in the blanks of our map of Old Testament history the key points which God highlights would be better seen and understood by God’s people. The second is that from a clearer understanding of God’s dealings with his people would flow a clearer desire to walk in God’s ways. Both passions are plain to see throughout this book and applied with insight and wisdom by a very knowledgeable and passionate writer.’
—Chris Hughes, Pastor of Bishopstoke Evangelical Church, Hampshire, England

'A gem of a book'
—Rev Dr Iain D Campbell
