Description of Fights, Flights and the Chosen Ones by Young Shin Lee
Book Three focuses on the lives of Samuel, Saul, and David as depicted in 1 and 2 Samuel. It begins with the birth of Samuel, the last judge of Israel, who was called by God as a youth. As he grows older, the people call upon him to find a king for Israel, and the Lord directs him to Saul, whom he anoints as king. As Saul disobeys the Lord, Samuel is redirected to anoint a young David to be the new King of Israel. David serves the lord faithfully, though his reign over Israel is not without trouble or circumstance, as he must deal with enemies both outside and insides his borders … not to mention his greatest battle—himself.

One stone takes down the giant…and now the fighting really begins! You would think King Saul should thank David for removing Israel’s biggest enemy. Instead, Saul puts this popular young warrior on the run. But even after David takes the throne, his own kids plunge the country into civil war. Fights, Flights, and the Chosen Ones carries readers through the heroic and tragic battles of Israel’s civil wars, as God exalts and topples leaders in the books of 1 and 2 Samuel.
