Product Description


Dr. Sam Mayhugh and D. Paul Thomas have achieved a unique dramatic dialogue, resulting in a text both stirring and ennobling, enacting the compelling story of David's struggles and showing how meaning and hope can come forth from our engagement with sorrow and pain. Everyone will see themselves in David's story and hear with joy the insights that Dr. Sam offers us when we are overwhelmed by grief, sorrow, or remorse. Especially appropriate for those facing challenges in the midst of life, The Odyssey of King David shows how God is always at work in our lives, even when we feel most alienated or alone.
The Very Rev. Gary Hall, former Dean of the Washington National Cathedral

From his adulterous affair with Bathsheba to the death of his beloved son, Absalom, this dramatic meditation on the life of King David highlights one of the Bible's extraordinary figures.

Moving past a sanitized, Sunday school version of David's life story, the authors paint a revealing portrait of him in all of his humanity, telling his story in the first person. David reveals his doubts and fears, anger and shame, with the authors sharing their keen observations of the complexities of his life throughout the story. Their insights help readers discover a source of healing that can restore all of us-God's broken vessels-to health and wholeness.

Whether you want to learn more about this young shepherd who became king of Israel or need encouragement to overcome life's sorrows and challenges, you'll be inspired by The Odyssey of King David.
