In ancient Israel, at the crossroads of the great trading routes, a man named Benaiah is searching for a fresh start in life.

Phil5 Stars Out Of 5Lion of War Series-both booksNovember 22, 2014PhilQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Excellent read! Definitely worth the time. These two books make you think deeper about the circumstances that David faced when he was being persecuted and an outcast from the people he loved. These stories also bring to life the other men and people in David's life that were so significant to his survival on the battlefield and their perspective of this "man after God's own heart" in the day to day struggles of life during the time they lived. It is also interesting to think of the other people in David's life that I had not considered before when reading about David. Looking forward to the third book!
