BARRELS OF CONFIDENCE

From the August 1963 issue of The Christian Science Journal


King Ahab of Israel married a pagan princess, Jezebel by name, and established her in his palace as his queen. Jezebel brought her pagan beliefs and practices with her; she scoffed at the religion of the Israelites and slew most of their prophets; and before long the worship of Baal, her god, was flourishing in the land.
