The title, King Saul: the man after the flesh, shows us the central figure of the book, a type too of the fleshly condition of the nation as a whole.The lessons connected with the rise, reign and end of King Saul are many, and all point to the utter unprofitableness of the flesh in its greatest excellence to be aught that is acceptable to God.The subject in one sense is a depressing one, and the proper effect should be to turn us from the contemplation of the man after the flesh to the man after Gods own heart, David, who comes upon the scene in the latter part of the book and shows the contrast between faith and nature.

As a type of Christ, he is the antidote to the baleful example and influence of poor Saul, and thus shows how God would ever lead, even through the knowledge of sin in ourselves and of the evil about us, not to occupation with that, but with Him who is the Deliverer of His people. May the Lord use this effort to trace the workings of the flesh and the triumphs of His grace to the blessing of His people!A word of explanation may not be out of place as to the character of Jonathan spoken of in the body of the book.

The matter is one of great delicacy, and the writer shrinks from taking the edge off any wholesome lessons that have been connected with the character and position of Jonathan, but would only call attention to what is said in the body of the book and leave each reader free to draw his own conclusions.***Table of Contents:The State of the PeopleThe Captivity in the Philistines LandGods Care for His own HonorGods Mercy to His Humbled PeopleThe Peoples Desire for a KingThe Call of the KingThe New KingTested and Found WantingSaul and Jonathan ContrastedSauls Foolish OathSauls Kingdom EstablishedAmalek SparedThe Man after Gods own HeartThe Breach between Saul and DavidDavid and JonathanThe Priesthood in Connection with David and with SaulSauls Pursuit of DavidThe Triumph of MagnanimityDavid and AbigailContrasts of Faith and FailureSaul and the Witch of EndorDavid with the PhilistinesDavids Chastening and RecoveryThe Death of Saul and JonathanDavids Lament over Saul and Jonathan
