About-

King Saul is based on the Biblical story of the first king of Israel. It retells the story in a fresh way, offering new looks at the three major characters--Saul, Samuel, and David--and the events that brought them together at the very foundation of the nation of Israel three millennia ago. Holbert's retelling reveals how this old story is surprisingly modern as it turns its gaze on power politics, personal rivalries, and religious use and abuse as the life of early Israel unfolds.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A retelling of the story of King Saul that does what few biblical scholars have done: Holbert has raised not just Samuel from the dead, but Saul and all the hosts of Israel as well! Here is a novel that pulses with all the complexity, intrigue, and depth of life as we know it!"
--Roy Heller, Associate Professor of Old Testament, Perkins School of Theology
