The Bible History Volume 4: Israel under Samuel, Saul, and David, to the Birth of Solomon, by Alfred Edersheim (1825 - 1889)
The history of Israel, viewed as the Theocracy, or Kingdom of God, consists of three periods : First, that under the guidance of Prophets (from Moses to Samuel); secondly, that under the rule of Kings (from Saul to the Babylonish Captivity); and, thirdly, that under the reign of High-priests (from Ezra to the birth of Jesus Christ). Thus the Theocracy had passed through its full typical development in all its stages, when He came, to Whom they all pointed : Jesus Christ, the Prophet, King, and High-priest of the Kingdom of God. The period described in the present volume closes one of these stages, and commences another. The connecting link between them was Samuel — who alone fully realised the mission of the Judges, and who was also Divinely appointed to inaugurate the new institution of royalty in Israel. That royalty next appeared in its twofold possibility — or, as we might express it, in its negative and positive aspects. Saul embodied the royal ideal of the people, while David represented the Scriptural ideal of royalty in its conscious subjection to the will of the Heavenly King. Saul was, so to speak, the king after Israel's, David after God's own heart. But with the actual introduction of monarchy the first period had come to an end, and a new era begun, which was intended to continue till the third and last preliminary stage was reached, which prepared the way for the Advent of Him, Who was the fulfilment of the typical meaning of all. (Summary by Preface)

Welcome to Librivox, claudialeija21!
It would be great to have you record section 3 for this project (The Bible History). It looks like you haven't completed your 1 minute test recording yet. It's not really a test, more like a technical specs check to make sure you can produce mp3s that fit the Librivox technical standards. You can find all the info you need here. There is a video tutorial on the test recording here here and some more detailed instructional videos here. You might also want to try this tool to check your own technical specs so that you can pass the test recording on your first try. The most common issue is with overall volume and the easiest fix is to use the Audacity 'Loudness Normalization' effect set to -19 LUFS in 'perceived loudness' mode. Post your recording in this forum and once someone replies to your thread to give it an OK, you can post back in this thread saying you're ready to record. See you soon (hopefully)! Don't be one of the many people who appear and then disappear without a trace! You'd be missing out on all the fun of Librivox.
