They include Hannah, God's faithful servant; Doeg, a false, Iago-like figure; Hophni and Phinehas, profaners of all things of God; and Saul, Israel's great and divinely appointed first king.
This is a classic compendium of stories chosen to delight and shock, to disturb, haunt and teach us about what we should and should not do. The boldly drawn characters leap out from the pages to admonish us to go on with our search for solutions to problems that span the centuries.
