Every day the giant would come forward and challenge the Israelite army. “Choose you a man and let him come fight me.” Even the bravest soldiers were afraid of the giant. The Israelites were frozen with fear. But a young shepherd boy visiting his brothers at the battle heard Goliath’s taunts and righteous anger rose within him. David cried out in faith: “The battle is the LORD’s!”
This classic account from the Old Testament tells the story of David, years before he became king while he was still a shepherd boy. Full of rich meaning, such as David’s faith (and King Saul’s cowardice), it speaks to today’s audience with its anti-bullying message. Adapted by David Kryn in beautiful full color, David vs Goliath should provide readers young and old with new treasures with each reading.
