What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to explore the beloved and biblical character David in a way that would inspire people to delve into their Bible and discover the majesty of ancient Israel. My goal was to inspire readers to realize that there is so much more to the story of David than we read–while staying true to the biblical account.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Biblical fiction takes the characters already in the Bible and simply fills in the blanks fictionally. David is a well-known, and beloved character in the Bible, yet there is so much more to him than what most people think. These novels explore the full character of David's life and of those around him.
“What chance do you have against the giant?” King Saul asked.
David bowed. “Let the king know. Your servant kept his father’s sheep. There came a lion and a bear and took a lamb out of the flock. And when the lion arose against me, I caught the lion by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. I also slew the bear, my lord. This uncircumcised Philistine will be as one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God. The LORD God that delivered me out of the paw of the lion and out of the paw of the bear, He will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine.”
The king’s eyes closed. “I fear to send you, my son. I fear what the giant will do to you. You have yet to witness his great strength.” He hesitated. “But I do believe the LORD is with you. I pray that He is. Our honor, our nation, our lives rest upon you, my servant. Go, and Jehovah be with you.”
David left the tent, but only Jonathan followed him. The king’s son walked over to a pole that bore a flag of challenge. It had lain unused on the ground for these past forty days, but now Jonathan hoisted it high and slammed the butt hard into the earth to steady it. The red flag waved defiantly in the small breeze of the late afternoon.
A roar of approval rose from the ranks of Hebrew soldiers, and from the valley below, Goliath beheld the challenge flag and beat upon his breastplate in pleased battle lust. He shouted, “Come then! Send me a man that we may fight!”
David took a deep breath, eyeing the monstrous giant. Then he bounded down the slope to meet his fate and fulfill the duty of his anointing.
The Davidic Chronicles Series follows David from the time of his anointing by the seer Samuel to his anointing as king of Israel in Hebron. While staying true to the Bible facts given, the series it meticulously researched in an attempt to stay true to the culture of time as well, fictionally filling in the gaps between Bible facts. The Davidic Chronicles is sure to delight both the casual reader and the avid Bible scholar.
