About the Book

At the age of fifteen Jonathan led an untried army against a Philistine Garrison, winning an incredible victory. Two years later Jonathan and his armor bearer attacked a Philistine Army, and when joined by his father's troops again won an amazing victory. After these triumphs, Jonathan is forced to stand by, watching his father descend into a madness that, after destroying the lives of his family, eventually led to the most terrible defeat Israel ever suffered to that time. Today Jonathan's amazing victories have become submerged in the story of David. If people remember him at all, it is as David's friend. What he achieved has become lost, and Jonathan has become Israel's forgotten hero.
