Praise for the Print Edition

This is the most interesting and instructive volume. The character and the history of Saul form a striking and affecting study; although, as our author remarks, ‘in comparison with the other scripture memoirs, but little has been written on this piece of biography.’ With great minuteness, and force, and beauty, he brings out the chief points in the career of the first monarch of Israel; and at the same time makes the narrative of outward events serve as a key to unlock the chambers of his inner being.
