About The Shepherd King Chronicles: David & Goliath
When the Philistine warrior Goliath threatens to enslave the Israelites, King Saul is greatly afraid. He summons the twelve tribes of Israel to the Valley of Terebinths, but no one is brave enough to answer Goliath's challenge in single combat.
Meanwhile, the young shepherd David watches over his father's flocks in Bethlehem. His father sends him to the battlefront to seek news of his brothers' safety.
David hears Goliath ridicule Israel and blaspheme God. But no one, not even King Saul, will fight for God's chosen people - except the young man God anointed to be king: the shepherd boy himself.
In the first book of the Shepherd King Chronicles, rediscover the story of David and Goliath in a way you have never imagined. Read the dramatic story and discover:
- Why did David pick up five stones at the brook?
- Why did the Philistines invade Israel?
- Did Saul know David?
