AGE: 11-14

The miraculous story of Saul, the first Hebrew king, is creatively brought to life in Galia Ron-Feder-Amit`s novel for young adults. Saul, a simple shepherd, finds himself in the midst of national turmoil when the people of Israel demand that their God give them a human king. Saul, who is chosen for his virtues as an honest, humble and righteous man, soon finds out that his duties as a king challenge his character. When his people push him into a war against the Philistines, he is forced to refuse God`s orders for the first time. Straying from God`s way becomes more usual for Saul and ultimately paves the way for a new king, his son-in-law David. Saul`s road from his early years to his death in battle becomes a captivating tale of adventure, struggle, doubt and love. Saul brings ancient history close and dramatizes the lives of fascinating characters who will appeal even to readers unfamiliar with biblical history.
