The Beating of Sodom and Gomorrah by John J. Collins
The Beating of Sodom and Gomorrah is a new book by John J. Collins that chronicles the history of King Ahab’s pursuit of the two kings of Israel, namely the prophet Amos and King Jezebel, and their destruction at the hands of Ahab and his army of ten thousand men in order to steal all of their treasures and their booty. This tale of triumph and retribution describes how Ahab’s wrathful rage against the two kings led him to mete out punishment to the most malevolent of human creatures.
This book is written by Collins and illustrated by Chicago-based publisher James Hastings. This book will introduce readers to the story of the Israelites in the days of King Ahab’s attempt to see to it that the two ancient kings were brought to justice. This book will introduce these ancient Israelites as they explore the legendary setting of the world of Judges and I Samuel, as well as the origins of biblical scholars such as Josephus, who authored several works that discuss the power of kings in Israel.
In addition to details about historical context, Collins and Hastings present a series of historical events that will be featured in this volume. One example of this is a description of the life of Moses, whose mother had Moses kidnapped by the Egyptians. In order to rescue his mother from the clutches of Egyptian assassins, Moses was eventually taken captive by the Israelites, who quickly became the only civilization to conquer the Egyptian realm.
At the time of the destruction of the city of Sodom and Gomorrah, Christians did not believe that a virgin was truly God’s chosen woman, Mary, but what did people think of the character of Mary?

The Beating of Sodom and Gomorrah will also offer a glimpse into the type of society that existed in the ancient city of Sodom, specifically the fact that it was where the biblical patriarch Jacob settled.
