Old sins cast long shadows…
King Manasseh is dead, but his terrible legacy of violence lives on. The people of Judah, enjoying a period of peace and prosperity, are apathetic and blissfully unaware of the terrible fate that looms over them. Little do they know that events in faraway Assyria will soon lead to the greatest catastrophe their small kingdom has ever known.
Little do they know that the future of their realm, even their very continued survival, has in fact been entrusted to a handful of mere children – children that will be forced to endure a lifetime of suffering that will make or break their nation’s destiny.
Day of Darkness is a reconstruction of the story of the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BCE by the Babylonians – a story of unspeakable horror, yet also of awe-inspiring faith and unstoppable hope. It shows that there can be light in the midsts of the darkest night; hope in the deepest despair; and restoration for those who have lost everything.
