About the Book

MICHAL—She was supposed to be the official tie that bound Israel’s greatest warrior to its first king. But as no one can escape a clash of survival that pits the towering figures of her father, King Saul, against her husband, David, it is Michal who must come to grips with the fatal threat to her and her family as their nation edges toward civil war.

DAVID—As a keeper of sheep and slayer of Goliath, David was always at his happiest when serving the God he loved. He wins monumental battles to become Israel’s most celebrated military hero, but struggles with losing those who matter most to him in order to fulfill his destiny. Despair and emptiness are answered with God’s power to become one of the most famous Old Testament stories of all times.

SAUL—He had been given the historic highest honor as the Lord’s own selection to become the first king to lead the godly nation of Israel. King Saul was determined to bring Israel even greater glory while immortalizing his own name. But as self-preservation overcomes his judgment, Saul’s story becomes “Condemnation”—where deepening ego can only invite increasing torment from the God he had dedicated his life to serving.

Condemnation: The Calamity of Israel’s First Crown speaks to the world of today, one of political corruption, strange alliances, wars, passion, and betrayal—all of which are attached to the tremendous spiritual forces of good and evil. This epic Old Testament story prefigures biblical stories that were to follow while it mirrors the challenges of our present day.

About the Author

As an American descendant of a Nazarene from the Holy Land, Debra George was born and raised in the Orthodox Christian faith. Throughout her life, history in the making has moved her pen around as a freelance journalist to record changes going on across the globe along with the subsequent reactions from those most passionately affected here in America. In 1988, she worked on an African-American news magazine, The Heritage, during Jesse Jackson’s climactic but unsuccessful bid to become the first African-American major party candidate for president. That same year, the Palestinian “Intifada” (Uprising) made headlines and she obtained reaction through countless interviews with Palestinian-Americans and people from all walks of life for her local television show Evening Arabesque, which she produced and wrote for five years. In 1989, when the Berlin Wall fell, she interviewed German-American reaction for a local radio station. During 1990-91’s Desert Storm, she broke down barriers to share Arab-American reaction on Evening Arabesque. Her interviews earned her an award from the Syracuse Chapter of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) in 1994. Debra was the publicist for her parish’s Middle Eastern Festival for 30 years. She also worked public relations for PBS Celebrity Chef Julie Taboulie, America’s first TV Culinary Star with a lifestyle series about the Lebanese/Middle Eastern cuisine.
