 The Prolonged Struggle of Supernatural Forces for Creation’s Loyalty as Revealed In— 

Vol. II.— King Solomon Until the Promised Deliverer —Prophets and Kings 

Heritage Edition—Some 248 Century-Old Illustrations, 472 pages 

This volume covers the last half of the Old Testament, from the ascension of Solomon to the throne of Israel to the prophesying of Malachi. It points out the great moral lessons to be learned from Israel’s triumphs, defeats, backslidings, captivity, and reformation, showing God’s mercy toward an obdurate people, and making these lessons of practical help to souls in times of testing. It abounds in great character studies, and above them all rises in glory supernal the coming King, the Lamb of God.

This edition of this widely translated and distributed book is an interactive PDF designed primarily for download and use in Adobe Reader (free software on the internet) with many features—highlighting, underlining, word and phrase search, sticky notes, select, copy, paste, print, and electronic links to chapters, pages, and illustrations.
I have found this book very informative as well as easy and enjoyable to use.
