  1. Ed S.

    Excellent read, well written and spiritually accurate. If you have read the story of young David fighting Goliath especially as a bedtime story to your children, this is just like being there and feeling every emotion but from the eyes of Benaiah as a young man, who later became one of King David’s most trusted men. You are there when God’s Army felt fear and uncertainty, but also faith and hope in not wanting to run ahead of God’s will when loyalty to King Saul was important. I should say no more… I did not want to stop reading it and I can’t wait for the next one!

    Wonderful book!! I could not put it down!! It was entertaining and enriching. I can’t wait for more historical fiction from Jared Dodd. His history is very well researched and increased my understanding and ability to learn so much more of the truths in the Old Testament by being able to stand in the moment myself. This is a must read!

    I absolutely loved “Priest – The Tale of Benaiah” and could not put the book down! This is an incredibly well written book that takes you right into the world of David and King Saul through the eyes of the young priest Benaiah. The vivid detail, action and emotion in this book bring to life the story of Benaiah and in a way that makes you feel like you are actually there. This book made me go back and revisit a lot of the Old Testament, and that is a good thing! I can’t wait for the next book!

    This is a must read. Extremely well written account of David’s journey to the throne and the strength of the people around him. It has brought to life for me the life of David and his complete trust in God. There was a lesson taught to me in just about every chapter. Can’t wait for the next book in this trilogy.
