Overview

In this series upgrade, we bring you the stories of two different but important men in Scripture—Elijah and Saul. A prophet to the nation of Israel in a time of widespread idolatry, Elijah led a life characterized by great faith and powerful miracles. His life remains a compelling reminder for Christians living in times of spiritual upheaval and moral ambiguity. Saul’s legacy is also significant, but for very different reasons. His rise and fall as king, followed by perpetual strife among his descendants, reminds us of the difficult path God’s people often walk. As is characteristic of the People in the Bible series, the struggles and successes of these ancient men clearly relate to today’s church. The lives and lessons in these volumes will challenge and encourage you.

With the Logos versions, these books integrate seamlessly into your personal digital library. With a click or tap, access Scripture references in your preferred translation, saving you time, and adding depth to the stories of Elijah and Saul.

In Elijah’s Israel of 900 BC, truth was often compromised as the people steadily departed from the worship of the one true God. It was a multifaith society where immorality reached the highest level. Tolerance trumped truth, much like Western society today. What are Christians to do in such a spiritual and moral climate? Elijah is our great example and inspiration as we dare to contend for the truth, even challenging the religious establishment if necessary. What could be more relevant for the Christian church at the present time?

Cheeseman clears the head, warms the heart, and imparts much nourishment by his comments on the story. His book will reward prayerful readers.

Saul and Sons: Decline and Fallout in the Family of Israel’s First King

  • Author: Brian H. Edwards
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 160

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Israel’s first king began with great promise and ended in tragedy. Edwards traces Saul’s start in the monarchy and accelerating spiral into one of the most lamentable biographies in the Bible. Along the way there is much to learn from a king whose story is told in Scripture so that we might avoid the ways of a man who fell out with God and fell in with the powers of darkness. The drama continues with tales of his family and the blood-spattered walls of Beth Shan. There is another member of Saul’s line who shines with bright hope and reflects the character of his godly father in contrast to that of his tragic grandfather. An accessible book for every reader, Saul and Sons brings the characters of Saul, Jonathan, and Mephibosheth to life.

Brian H. Edwards earned his theological degree at the University of London before entering the pastoral ministry for the next 30 years. He then took on a wider role of preaching and lecturing within the United Kingdom and abroad. Brian has authored or coauthored more than 20 books on theological, historical, and biographical subjects. He and his wife, Barbara, authored the widely used marriage-preparation course No Longer Two.
