Synopsis from the publisher:
David Liberty is a broken, lonely, and embittered old man. With his mind still intact but trapped in a failing body, doomed to spend his last days in a nursing home, David welcomes his impending death—his escape from life. All that changes when he is visited by an angel, Joelle, who confronts his past failings and offers David a second chance at life.
At first David scoffs, but the chance to renew his body and live again intrigues him. But there is an extraordinary condition: "You will demonstrate to God through your actions that you believe and love Him," Joelle announces. David must help others reignite their faith so they do not lose eternity.
Temporarily escaping his nursing home, David is thrown into the lives of people he begins to care deeply for. He hopes to reunite them with God, but he discovers another obstacle—the angel has removed David's ability to speak. In addition, David must fight a powerful enemy, who seeks to destroy God's children any way he can—and David, as well!
Awesome ~ this book is just awesome!
What can I say? The books that I've been reading lately have been really, really good and this one is one of the best!
David and Goliath: A Novel is the first book in the Guardian Angel Chronicles. I found this book to be engaging, emotionally riveting, surprising and unique! The principals of Faith that are weaved through this fictional tale ring solid and true.
As for the ending, let me just share that it was rather unexpected and SO much better than what I was prepared for. I can't wait till the next book of this series is released!
