Please Note: This title can also be ordered with a companion test booklet (a study guide of multiple-choice questions for each chapter) at no additional charge.
Samuel was called the last of the judges and the first of the prophets, Acts 3.24 and 13.20. He anointed the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David. The history of these three men is found in the books called 1 and 2 Samuel. It was, like today, a time of great change.
King David was one of the most famous men who ever lived, a brave soldier and a good king, who wrote beautiful songs about the Lord. He is also a picture of our Lord Jesus Christ, first rejected by Israel but later ruling over them.
