About "Covenant of War (#02 in Lion Of The War Series)"
The year is 993 BC. After years of bloody civil war, Eleazar son of Dodai, one of King David's most elite warriors, wants nothing more than to finally live peacefully in the land. But on the plains near the Great Sea, a terrifying army of Philistines has mobilized to crush the Hebrew tribes once and for all. In the sun-drenched valleys and dark forests of the hill country, Eleazar and his warriors make their stand against Israel's deadliest enemy. The fate of an entire nation rests on the courage of a small band of heroes known as the Mighty Men. In a land torn by conflict, depleted by drought and threatened by treachery, the horrors and heroism of the ancient battlefields come to life.

While its easy to read the Bible and put it down and forget about it or think its not relevant to us today, Covenant of War, puts across the story of David in a way which captivates your interest and keeps you wanting to read more and more and to return to the Bible to see if thats precisely how it played out. It brings alive history, and puts in perspective what life would have been like back then and the different challenges that would have been evident, and what it truly means to lean on God in life or death situations. I absolutely loved how the author presented this timeless Bible story.
Cliff Graham really painted a clear picture of what life could have been like when King David was alive. He shows the everyday struggles that David would have faced and showed the difficulties of organising a discouraged people Not only does it give an analysis of king David, but also the people who he would have associated with and and lived with during his time of living in the caves, the clashes between the different classes of people who would've sided with David. It's written well so it's a story that catches your attention throughout, however also accurate enough that it's not totally fiction.
Absolutely loved this book. Another exemplary look into the history of King David. The war scenes were excellent but I most loved the tension that slowly grew, in the background, in seemingly unimportant events that we never think of. Cliff Graham has done an excellent job portraying the very real, grit and determination of these, the greatest of warriors!
