The year is 993 BC. After years of bloody civil war, Eleazar son of Dodai, one of King David’s most elite warriors, wants nothing more than to finally live peacefully in the land. But on the plains near the Great Sea, a terrifying army of Philistines has mobilized to crush the Hebrew tribes once and for all. In the sun-drenched valleys and dark forests of the hill country, Eleazar and his warriors make their stand against Israel’s deadliest enemy. The fate of an entire nation rests on the courage of a small band of heroes known as the Mighty Men.In a land torn by conflict, depleted by drought and threatened by treachery, the horrors and heroism of the ancient battlefields come to life.This unabridged audio download of Covenant of War is the second book in the Lion of War series—the intense, gritty, and stylistic portrayal of the Mighty Men of Israel, a rag-tag band of warriors who came to King David in his most desperate hour and fought with him while he claimed the throne he was destined to fill. Their legendary deeds are recorded in 2 Samuel 23 and 1 Chronicles 11.

Although a bible based story the characters had "real" personality and there was plenty of blood & guts.
Well written and well performed - personalised the men who lived and fought alongside David when he was just an outlaw.
Very distinctive voice - well narrated.
The stories behind the story
Excellent - I only wish the rest of Cliff Graham's books would be available at Audible.
Can't recommend it enough! the storytelling is great and captivating! for those who like war stories, pick this books up or listen to it as I have!!
I would love to see more books like this one. great theoretical narrative of the lives and feats of David's mighty men. Graham is great with action scenes and conveying the emotion of battle. I highly recommend it and look forward to finishing the rest of the series.
I think this book does a great job at filling in the gaps of the Bible of the exploits of King David and his mighty men. I know these are not accurate but these are a great guess using your imagination.
In the very top
David seeking the Lord during a water fast.
The story of Jonathan's last battle!
No, I listened to it in pieces - a chapter here and there, mostly while doing menial tasks at home or travelling - very good for airfares!
Some people critisize the books in this series as being unbiblical, but I dissagree. Sure we do not know exactly how things happened, but the book paints a very realistic picture of how David and his men were - none were perfect, but God still used them for mighty deeds.
