Book Excerpt :

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.

Book Short Summary:

Saul was the first king of Israel (1029-1005 BCE). His life was full of drama and tribulations, and ended tragically. The book of Samuel portrays Saul as a colorful personality with excesses--as the classic tragic hero. Moreover, Saul's excellent virtues qualified him for the monarchy. He had courage and military power. Saul was modest and shy. In contrast to the positive portrayal of Saul in some biblical narrative, many other passages in the Hebrew Bible portray Saul negatively--as a paranoid man who chased demons, as obsessed with the pursuit of David. Thus he struggles constantly with his own family members as well as his circle of friends. From the battle at Michmas till the last day of his life, fear is Saul's constant companion. Readers of this volume will rediscover Saul, will have a better understanding of his achievements and failures as the first king of Israel. We trust that this study will afford a provocative and useful insight into the character of Saul.

Book Short Summary:

The most exuberant and funny of all Bellow’s novels, Henderson the Rain King remained the author’s personal favorite. Its outsized hero, Eugene Henderson, a mountain of a man, a millionaire, the father of many, remains adrift. Aggrieved, worn-out, all but defeated he longs to set things straight. Following the promptings of his unforgettable inner voice—“I want, I want, I want”—our hero finds himself in Africa. Henderson makes his way into a mythic sun-baked interior, where among exotic tribes he finds fellow seekers, teachers and soulmates. Whether blowing up a cistern full of frogs or learning to walk without fear among the lions, soulful, zany Henderson intends to burst his “spirit’s sleep.”

Book Short Summary:

The negative biblical presentation of King Saul of Israel has been biased in favour of David at the expense of Saul. This book presents a more positive picture and more realistic view of the culture of the period extending from Saul to the schism. Simcha Shalom Brooks explores a number of controversial issues such as the historicity of the biblical text on which so many modern scholars are sharply divided; that David was ambitious and coveted Saul's throne, and even though David became king, the people continued to support the house of Saul. This book makes a valuable contribution to the current biblical debate as to the existence of ancient Israel in the Iron Age 1 Period. Simcha Shalom Brooks draws on literary, historical and archaeological material to present a balanced view of the period.

Book Short Summary:

The biblical story of King David and his conflict with King Saul (1 and 2 Samuel) is one of the most colorful and perennially popular in the Hebrew Bible. In recent years, this story has attracted a great deal of scholarly attention, much of it devoted to showing that David was a far less heroic character than appears on the surface. Indeed, more than one has painted David as a despicable tyrant. Paul Borgman provides a counter-reading to these studies, through an attentive reading of the narrative patterns of the text. He focuses on one of the key features of ancient Hebrew narrative poetics -- repeated patterns -- taking special note of even the small variations each time a pattern recurs. He argues that such "hearing cues" would have alerted an ancient audience to the answers to such questions as "Who is David?" and "What is so wrong with Saul?" The narrative insists on such questions, says Borgman, slowly disclosing answers through patterns of repeated scenarios and dominant motifs that yield, finally, the supreme work of storytelling in ancient literature. Borgman concludes with a comparison with Homer's storytelling technique, demontrating that the David story is indeed a masterpiece and David (as Baruch Halpern has said) "the first truly modern human."

Book Short Summary:

This book is not to replace reading the bible. I will give references for you to gain more knowledge and proof of the validity of the Bible. I believe the original words written in the Bible are inerrant. I believe by having an idea of what chapter is going to say, you will be able to easily understand what you are reading in the bible. There are several broad descriptions of the Bible. Augustine discovered that the Old Testament contains the New Testament concealed, while the New Testament contains the Old Testament revealed. The Old Testament is the story of a nation. The New Testament is the story of a man. The Bible is unique in that it contains 8,362 predictive verses with 1,817 predictions concerning 737 separate matters. Our Messiah, Jesus, fulfilled over 300 predictions. Prophecies are important in proving the authenticity of the Bible along with the Bible's integrated design, which is proven mathematically, microcode and macrocodes.

Book Short Summary:

The Biblical Life of King David is the story of the greatest king Israel has ever known. It is titled as such because the only source used for this story is your Bible. Bible scriptures have been interwoven into the story to encourage group Bible study. However, the narrative reads like a novel. King David had a humble beginning as a shepherd boy. Yet God testified regarding the heart of David as having a heart like God (Acts 13:22). When reading this story, you will become very aware of why God testified this way about David. Just to clue you in on three possible reasons: King David was quick to repent when he knew he had made a mistake. Though King David was accused of having blood on his hands, he never killed a person off the battlefield. King David's judgements as king were righteous before God. I pray that you enjoy reading The Biblical Life of King David as much as I enjoyed the study and writing of this story.

Temptations and Trials Faced by Bible Legends

Book Short Summary:

We all face temptations and trials in our lives, and how we deal with these times can be defining moments in our lives. So how do we choose the right thing instead of the easiest thing, or the most pleasurable thing? The best way for Christians to successfully respond to temptations and trials in their lives is to start with the Bible. Temptations and Trials Faced by Bible Legends looks at temptations and trials that major characters of the Bible faced, and author and psychologist Michael Kotch shows how these Bible legends tended to fall into one of three categories when faced with a major trial or temptation: either they turned to God for guidance and did whatever God wanted them to do, or they did not follow God, with one group repenting for their disobedience and the other group simply continuing in the wrong direction. In the end, we can learn how doing what is right in God’s eyes can be much different than doing what is “right” in our own, and that the best outcomes follow from consulting with God. God promises that we will never be tempted beyond our abilities, and he will always provide us with a way out of our temptations and trials. And for Christians, when we read the Bible daily, use it to create a plan of action, and always do what is right according to God, we can be confident in God’s leadership as we develop a character in the image of Christ.

Book Short Summary:

What name appears throughout the Bible more than any other? David, the king. A millennium after Abraham and a millennium before Jesus, David united the 12 tribes of Israel for a brief moment of history; but more important, he emerges from the mists of ancient times as a person of God of inspiring nobility but also of base venality. In order that we may learn from David and appropriate his great truths for our own faith journey, David, the King recasts the dramatic events of his life into our own profane, secularized time. The great stories of David posed as many questions as they did answers. How did the love/hate relationship between David and his predecessor King Saul come about? How could David endure the persecution by an increasingly manic Saul? What was it like for Jonathan to be torn between his love for his father, Saul, and his dear friend David? Why would noble David tolerate the murderous Joab? Why would David permit Amnon to get away with his cynical rape of Tamar? What happened to Abigail, Davids sweet love? What kind of God kills Bathshebas baby from Davids rape, then gives them Solomon? In David, the King the events of his life are set in our modern times so that we can more easily consider the greatness and failures of Davids life with and against and through God. At the end of his life, we read in the Bible that a young woman was brought to him to warm him back to life, though not sexually. In this novel David has a surprise visit from Laurel, a granddaughter he has never met. She desperately wants to know him and learn of his life for reasons which she cannot disclose. He recounts his great story for her, a story set in the novel in the last three-quarters of the 20th century. In the course of his recounting all that happened to him, her critical need becomes apparent. In seeking to understand her grandfathers faith journey, Laurel is launched on her own. And David, in order to help her, is once again aroused to find and put into action the qualities which made him David, the King for posterity. In the novel Laurel finds David in the forests of the upper Midwest where he grew up in the family of Jesse, the youngest of eight sons. Before the famous encounter with the giant Goliath, there were intimations in the Bible of a brave and precocious child, one who could stand up to wild animals, who grew up to be a brave soldier. There was a secret anointing by Samuel of the lad. Also there were glimpses of early favorable contacts with King Saul--as Sauls spear carrier and as a musician who can sooth the moody monarch. Therefore David, the King fabricates a childhood for David where he can encounter bears and lions and where dauntless courage can be developed. His preliminary involvement with King Saul and his family occurs, and the stage is set for Davids encounter with the Giant. Saul has been employed as head of Kingdom Advertising Associates to try to pull together into a loose confederation 12 separate agencies scattered about the country. They are threatened by a powerful Eastern enemy, the Phillips Company, which--as David arrives on the scene--has challenged KAA on its home turf with The Giant. A huge, boisterous, arrogant politician, The Giant is determined to embarrass and so destroy KAA. David alone dares to face him. He leads a campaign which in effect cuts off the head of The Giant once and for all. David, the King challenges us to ourselves risk the leap of faith, to find courage where it is needed, to discover we are Gods choice for our present circumstances, to learn for ourselves we are never alone, and therefore to believe we can always live with hope.

Book Short Summary:

Knowledge without God is not the Truth. Only Truth leads us to the meaning of life as the power of life is in God. God is the everlasting Truth. Faith without understanding of Faith is an unfinished work in Faith. Each and everyone of us needs to discover our true identity of who we are before we could truly inherit the fullness of life as we desire to live a life filled with gifts in fullest measure of Peace, Love and Joy in our hearts now and forevermore. The objective of this Book is not to put down any religious beliefs, teachings, laws and practices we embrace. Its intention is to discover who we are in the spiritual realm and how our identity relates to God, who is our Creator and Master of this universe, and how this Father and Child relationship gives us freedom of Peace, which is the ultimate goal in humanity with an assured destiny of eternal life in the kingdom of God. God loves you. Jesus loves you. Amen. Each and every living soul in the history of mankind is a child of God. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Blood and flesh do not inherit the kingdom of God. Conquering Jerusalem is likened to men's attempts to attain divinity and righteousness with the might and knowledge of the flesh. Such repeated feats as recorded throughout the history of mankind would never bring down the kingdom of God from heaven to earth. Our Heavenly Father is a God of Peace, Love and Harmony. He is not a God of War, Hatred and Division. Misguided beliefs and biblical misinterpretations through religious laws of men in the flesh had inflected countless and senseless innocent bloodsheds upon mankind. Walking with faith in the flesh is knowledge. Walking with faith in the spirit is truth. All men shall be born again of the Word of God which is full of truth and grace, to fully embrace God and live eternally in His divine Truth and Spirit. The Word of God is embedded in all men as each man is born with a given measure of faith in the Word of God. I humbly express this Book as the priceless companion guide in studying the Word of God that shall bring forth healing to all souls throughout the nations on earth. All glory be unto our Father God. This Book shall serve as good text material for interfaith dialogue. It is the preordained duty of believers in Christ to share the Gospel of Light to members of other beliefs with understanding and love. This Book contains end times prophecy. The future middle eastern war is coming soon! The return of Chris is a certainty. Amen. Hope this Book would bring forth abundance of insightful revelations and joyful enlightenment in your heart and soul. Be very blessed within His presence of gracious embrace and enjoy reading it. In Christ and through Christ, we all live again. God bless. Jesus loves all of you. Amen!

Plot and characterization are each explored in detail in this study, and in each of the narrations the hero's tragic fate emerges both as the result of a character flaw and also as a consequence of the ambivalent role of the deity, showing a double theme underlying not only the biblical vision but also its two very different retellings nearer to our own times.

Book Short Summary:

I am writing this book to explain how to prove the Bible is true and written outside of our time dimension. Some of the connections between verses are not readily seen and I tie them together. I explain some of the 8,000+ prophecies contained in the Bible and 70 % have been fulfilled. I point out the ones that are being fulfilled today. I have links included to show a variety of current events like the 3rd largest river in the world turning blood red. Basically, I am trying to make the Bible more understandable as you read it.

Book Short Summary:

This work examines some of the stories in 1 Sam. 16-25 with the particular focus placed on Saul, Doeg, Nabal and the "son of Jesse." It seeks to discover new meaning in the structure as well as in the characters' functions in the narratives by studying the stories synchronically and diachronically. One of the mysterious characters in 1 Samuel that has puzzled many a scholar is Nabal the Calebite. This study scrutinizes the elements of his characterization in 1 Sam. 25 and considers his abuses of the "son of Jesse", the contextual role of the geographic setting and political environment during King Saul's reign. Similarly, this volume studies the function of the character of Doeg the Edomite in 1 Sam. 21 and 22 regarding his Edomite origin, his particular business in Nob and his official status in Saul's court. The phrase the "son of Jesse" is quite important in 1 Samuel and serves a particular purpose in the thematic development in the second half of the book. Viewed against the background of the Saul/David relationship, it underscores the superiority of the Davidic person in advancing the divine plan for the nation of Israel. The determination of the book's historical context is the key to understanding the multilayered messages. The roles of history and ideology in making these stories are also considered with the proposal that the making of the book(s) of Samuel after the Exile (5th c. B.C.) might have been instigated by the writer's desire to create the context needed for further development of the messianic ideas.

Book Short Summary:

The Bible has been written by sixty-six male prophets, kings, pharaohs, and New Testament authors. The Bible has been written by men, for men, and about men""like Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Jesus, and His Apostles. Consequently, the Bible is rather male-oriented, and one can see this in Apostle Paul who says women must not teach, "to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God" (Titus 2:5 NIV). Forgotten Women of the Holy Bible illuminates several outstanding women in Holy Scripture. The author's timeless effort reveals meticulous research and fresh insights into thirty-six important women who have been disregarded, minimized, and even forgotten in Holy Scripture. Some of these remarkable women are Priscilla, Tabitha, Phoebe, Joana, Lydia, Prophetess Miriam, Judge Deborah, Queen Esther, Prophetess Anna, and a female apostle named Junia""who was in prison with Paul. This treasure of chronicles on special women also includes Mother Mary, her sister, wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene who stood at the cross with Jesus, while the apostles were in hiding. After the crucifixion, Mary Magdalene and "the other Mary" bring spices to anoint the body of Jesus. When the tomb is found empty, these two women run to tell the apostles, and the Risen Lord suddenly appears to "them" on the road! The entire event is recorded in Matthew 28:1""10 NIV where the Risen Lord appears to at least two women, perhaps more than two: "Suddenly Jesus met them. 'Greetings,' he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, 'Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.'" This Holy Scripture is one of many found in the Bible which have been ignored, disregarded, or totally lost to memory. This Bible Study would benefit Christian pastors, teachers, lay students, men, and women alike.
