The story of 1 Samuel traces Saul’s rise and fall along with David’s strange succession. As fortunes turn upside down, the reader wonders if God will keep his promises to Abraham and bless the world through such a self-imploding nation and the reign of a human king. Join us as we explore 1 Samuel to see how God's agenda for his Kingdom will always challenge our ideal of life and liberty on our own terms.
