Product Description

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 withGod, 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!

Publisher's Weekly

Hathaway inaugurates the Guardian Angel Chronicles series with the tale of David Liberty, an old man in a nursing home who cannot speak but whose mind is lively. An angel, Joelle, appears to him in the guise of a physical therapist, offering him a new chance at life if he can successfully complete a series of trials that make him his brother's keeper. David is sent into three different settings, unable to speak but able to act, in an attempt to save lives and souls. This is a classic plot, almost allegorical (David's last name is one obvious device), and reminiscent of The Shack. The novel has imaginative promise but is flawed in execution: characterization is spotty, with some minor characters a bit too far beyond suspension-of-disbelief boundaries, though David is generally engaging and well-developed as he undergoes his trials. Sometimes the author's need to be spiritually edifying produces clunkers ("Sue and John were no longer in a healthy union"), though the dialogue is more surefooted. This will appeal to Christian fiction fans who like spiritual warfare stories. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    What is your Goliath? We all have one in our lives. We all have something we encounter that seems bigger than we are. With our faith and trust in God, we can overcome any Goliath the enemy puts in our path.This book was hard for me to put down. I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept my interest all the way through to the end! I will definitely read the next in the series!David is a frustrated, self centered man who appears to have something like ALS. His mind is fine but hes trapped in a body that doesnt work anymore. His daughter has put him in a nursing home where he just wishes he would die already! He is visited by an angel, Joelle. She offers him a second chance at life. He thinks, yeah, right. But as he thinks about the chance to escape his prison of a body, he begins to want this more and more. Joelle tells him the one condition of this offer is that he must help others find their faith.David finds himself dropped into the lives of people who, in one way or another, have lost their faith. He comes to care deeply for the people he encounters on his adventures as he becomes involved in their lives. One thing he discovers right away is that his ability to speak has been taken away! Actions must speak louder than words! That does present problems along the way but the biggest obstacle is fighting a very powerful enemy whos purpose is to destroy Gods people. I think Bryan has done a wonderful job of developing his characters. I felt like I knew them, like I was right there with David and Joelle. I wish his daughter, Mary, couldve interacted with her dad more at the end but other than that I loved everything about the book. David & Goliath is a book I would definitely recommend reading.This is my honest opinion of this book. I was provided a copy of this book for review and have not been paid for this review.
