The story of David and Goliath is one of the world's greatest examples of good triumphing over evil. Yet little is known about the young shepherd leading up to his famous battle with the giant.
How could a boy kill a bear and lion by himself, become the greatest musician of his day, and defeat a giant warrior in single combat-all before his seventeenth birthday? And what kind of character did David possess as he was passed over by his father and abused by his older brothers-only to become Israel's greatest hero and king?
David's genealogy provides some clues. A direct descendent from Abraham, the father of the Jewish faith, the shepherd would be the central bloodline to Jesus the Messiah, a thousand years later. Spending solitary time in the fields with just sheep, goats and dogs, David developed an intimate connection to his mysterious and invisible God.
On the sullied side of history, David's great, great grandmother Rahab was a noted prostitute and his great grandmother Ruth was a despised foreigner. Even his mother was shunned because of a hidden sin. How could the youngest of seven sons overcome these aberrations to the strict laws of Moses on his journey to greatness?
DAVID FAITH is a historical novel that picks up where the Bible is silent, a few generations since the Israelite slavery in Egypt. Our backstory develops under the vast star canopy of the Judean wilderness, with Israel surrounded by warring tribes on all sides. It's a barbaric world where powerful men crush their enemies and anyone else in their way. While out in the fields with his animals and fellow outcasts, David finds inspiration for some of time's most cherished songs. Faced with evil forces and impossible odds, David risks everything to save the love of his life-only to find his world unraveling into a dark spiral of tragedy and death.
Following the ensuing maelstrom of terror, a long-hidden mystery is uncovered. Will the pieces come together as David discovers redemption and the voice of his Father? Will there ever be divine intervention, or was it there all along?
A grand stage is set for history's first poet warrior to rise.
