The Philistine army has gathered for a vicious war against King Saul and the Israelites. With great suspense, a Philistine giant named Goliath boldly approaches the Israelites presenting a challenge: Defeat him and the Philistines will forever be their slaves; but if the Israelites lose, then they must become slaves to the Philistines. But who would want to defy such a giant, wearing only the finest armor and carrying the sharpest spear?
Nearby, a young boy named David is told to bring food to his older brothers in the army. When he arrives, he hears of Goliath's challenge. He offers to face the giant by himself. Goliath is convinced this must be some joke. But don't underestimate young David! Enjoy reading one of the Bible's best stories illustrated in LEGO as a family.
