Witness Kind David through the eyes of his contemporaries.

The First Book of David

It pulls you into the action where you witness these famous events firsthand.

King David is the timeless figure of a flawed man living a faithful life. In his book The First Book of David, longtime pastor Larry Booker re-imagines the life of David from the perspective of the men and women who lived alongside him.

“The Prophet Samuel, David’s wife Michal, his nephew Abishai, even Goliath’s armor bearer, and others, all retell the story of David from their perspectives,” said Booker. “It pulls you into the action where you witness these famous events firsthand.”

Booker, a former ‘hippy’, experienced a powerful reformation in the early‘70s, and quickly became fascinated with Kind David’s life. Now, after having been in the ministry for over 40 years, speaking in all 50 states and to 18 different nations, the tale of David is still always with him.

“Life is challenging, and a life spent in God’s service is exceptionally so,” said Booker. “David’s life is one of the supreme narratives of the scriptures and my book helps to bring us mere mortals into an understanding one of the greatest lives and times of the Bible.”
