This dramatic retelling of the accounts of the first two kings of Israel follows the intertwining stories of Jonathan, Saul, David and Michal documented in 1 and 2 Samuel.

In this imaginative yet biblically faithful book, readers will find themselves immersed in the hearts and minds of the key players as they experience battles, intrigue, plots, betrayal, love, and friendship.

This resource is a great way to help kids aged 8-13 engage with God’s word. They’ll be left thinking about what it means to trust God and realizing that only Jesus can really be the king God’s people need.

Makes a wonderful gift for children aged 8-13.

Includes a Bible-reading plan and notes that differentiate the known facts from the imaginative parts.

A book club discussion guide is also included.Perfect for homeschool co-ops.

Written by Katy Morgan, author of The Promise and the Light.

While staying faithful to the Bible plotline, Katy Morgan draws out the hopes, the fears, the belief and the unbelief all used by God to bring David to the throne.

The retelling of the biblical narrative really draws you into the action and tension of the story and, importantly, excites your curiosity to read the pages of the Bible itself.

Katy brings to life an extraordinary biblical story so that young people feel the power of God to work in our ordinary lives to achieve his amazing purposes.

Customer reviews


“Engages the mind and heart”

This engaging and enjoyable book based on 1 + 2 Samuel is a delight to read!

Katy is a clear and skilled storyteller whose love and knowledge of God's Word is evident through the accuracy in this book. I greatly appreciated the cast of characters at the front of the book, the map of Israel, and the overall layout of the book.

Personally, the best part of this book was the delight it gave me to read it. This book is easy to read (I read it in a few hours) and it pulls you in immediately. I think this is an excellent book for older elementary/middle schoolers, but anyone would enjoy this book! After I finished the book, I felt encouraged by how the book points it's reader to delight in the true King.
