What if you discovered an old journal written by King David when he was just a boy? What if this journal contained all of the stories you know and love about David but were penned by his own hand and included his fears, his victories, his mistakes, his accomplishments … and so much more?
Only a Boy Named David is written in the first person as if David was writing his experiences in a journal. Based on the Bible, familiar stories come alive in a whole new way as you read a first-hand account about what it must have been like to kill a lion that was attacking the sheep or what it felt like to flee from Saul.
David has much to teach about faith, surrender, trust, and obedience. Through each experience that is documented in his journal, it is clear that he loved God above all else. David’s songs are one example of his devotion to Yahweh.
Be inspired to live your life according to God’s plan as you read about David’s time as a shepherd, a warrior, a fugitive, and finally, a king.
