A new thought-provoking exposition of the political and religious
developments in the kingdom of Judah during the reign of King
Hezekiah, based on a close reading of biblical and extra-biblical
sources, and the insights of associated archaeological finds. Among
the major discussions: Hezekiah's reform of the Israelite cult -
the elimination of rural altars and the centralisation of all
worship in the Temple of Jerusalem; the introduction of literary
prophecy and its social message into Judah; Jerusalem's deliverance
during the Assyrian campaign against Judah in 701 bce. Indeed, the
Age of Hezekiah proves to have been a key stage in the growth and
transformation of Jerusalem into the Holy City. Full quotation of
ancient texts, illuminated by numerous maps and illustrations.
