The Shepherd from Bethlehem

The Shepherd from Bethlehem takes place during the days of the first monarchy of ancient Hebrew history. The story of David’s call to greatness begins with the failure of King Saul. With the arrival of a new and popular champion, this story follows the challenge of David, the shepherd boy, as he rises to defend his nation against the Philistines and Goliath at the Valley of Elah.

Filled with the intrigue of a modern political thriller, this story mixes the Bible narrative with tradition and legends that form the heart and character of young David, directing his path through the challenge of enemies within ancient Israel and without.
