MY REVIEW OF "DAVID AND GOLIATH"
Publisher: WinePress Publishing, 2010
What is your Goliath? We all have one in our lives. We all have something we encounter that seems bigger than we are. With our faith and trust in God, we can overcome any “Goliath” the enemy puts in our path.
This book was hard for me to put down. I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept my interest all the way through to the end! I will definitely read the next in the series.
David is a frustrated, self centered man who appears to have something like ALS. His mind is fine but he’s trapped in a body that doesn’t work anymore. His daughter has put him in a nursing home where he just wishes he would die already! He is visited by an angel, Joelle. She offers him a second chance at life. He thinks, “yeah, right”. But as he thinks about the chance to escape his prison of a body, he begins to want this more and more. Joelle tells him the one condition of this offer is that he must help others find their faith.
David finds himself “dropped” into the lives of people who, in one way or another, have lost their faith. He comes to care deeply for the people he encounters on his adventures as he becomes involved in their lives. One thing he discovers right away is that his ability to speak has been taken away! Actions must speak louder than words! That does present problems along the way but the biggest obstacle is fighting a very powerful enemy who’s purpose is to destroy God’s people.
I think Bryan has done a wonderful job of developing his characters. I felt like I knew them, like I was right there with David and Joelle. I wish his daughter, Mary, could’ve interacted with her dad more at the end but other than that I loved everything about the book. “David & Goliath” is a book I would definitely recommend reading.
This is my honest opinion of this book. I was provided a copy of this book for review and have not been paid for this review.
