Publisher's Summary

In ancient Israel, at the crossroads of the great trading routes, a man named Benaiah is searching for a fresh start in life. He has joined a band of soldiers led by a warlord named David, seeking to bury the past that refuses to leave him. Their ragged army is disgruntled and full of reckless men. Some are loyal to David, but others are only with him for the promise of captured wealth. While the ruthless and increasingly mad King Saul marches hopelessly against the powerful Philistines, loyal son Jonathan in tow, the land of the Hebrew tribes has never been more despondent - and more in need of rescue.
Over the course of ten days, from snowy mountain passes to sword-wracked battlefields, Benaiah and his fellow mercenaries must call upon every skill they have to survive and establish the throne for David - if they don’t kill each other first. Day of War brings to life the exploits of the Mighty Men of Israel, a rag-tag band of disgruntled warriors on the run with David, the soon-to-be King. Their legendary deeds are recorded in 2 Samuel 23 and 1 Chronicles 11.

A fiction novel that rivets you to your theology

I feel so blessed to have found this book . With over 500 books in my library I have never been introduced to a book that takes such literature to such an endless scope. All the while knowing that there was a boundry. That boundry is only the best selling book of all time. The Bible.
NOT FOR THE WEAK OF CONSTITUTION.
NOT FOR THE RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS STUCK.
ONLY FOR THE INDIVIDUAL OF BELIEF, KNOWLEDGE OF THE TIME, AND UNDERSTANDING OF HOW MUCH WE DON'T KNOW , YET HOW MUCH WE HAVE FAITH IN

Cliff Graham tells the story of King David using the stories of his Mighty Men using scripture as the foundation and his research on ancient Hebrew fighting tactics. The story is told from the perspective of his soldiers and it really lays out the importance of having a band of brothers.
