A nation on the brink of war… A people divided… For Saul ben Kish, life will never be the same.
What begins as a search for his father’s wayward donkeys becomes a call to courage, and obedience. Can one man rally a nation to rise above oppression and fight for freedom? Or will he fall under the weight of power?
Saul ben Kish is an ordinary man; that is, until he crosses paths with the prophet Samuel. Anointed by God to lead His people, this lowly Benjaminite shall soon be tested.
An epic tale of kingship; a journey into the heart of the Judean Mountains and across the sun-baked desert where the meek rise and the proud fall, and a stone is mightier than the sword.
A time is coming, a day of reckoning. The Anointed One. Available Now!

Clever and Credible … an intriguing tapestry that deepens understanding, not only of the biblical plot, but also of its spiritual significance. The Anointed One delivers a credible, entertaining read that could arguably take its place beside any scholarly history of ancient Israel. Judith Ingram, Author
