Your life is going well -- you are winning the battles of faith and enjoying your relationships with people and with God. Suddenly, you stumble. Things go wrong -- you lose your job; your marriage crumbles; or a loved one dies. Through prayer and perseverance, you recover and regain your strength; but disaster strikes again -- unexpected temptation shakes your faith -- and you find yourself searching for answers.
Suddenly, you hear a friendly, calm voice singing a song of strength and renewal. A handsome man from the past appears; he extends a hand of hope and lifts you to your feet. He introduces himself as David, the shepherd. He begins to sing a beautiful song -- the song of his life, his struggles and victories -- and the melody of his life amazingly resembles your own.
"We're not much different, you and I. Your victories...failures...surprises...and disappointments -- I know them all. Come, and I will share the secrets of finding the heart to go on."
Accept his invitation and discover how the most thrilling and adventurous life in Scripture holds valuable meaning for your own life of faith. Anderson's extensive research and travels throughout the Holy Lands eminently qualify him to lead you on this journey of faith. At times, you will visualize David's adventures so clearly you will feel as though you are there. Other times, your view of the shepherd turned king will be eclipsed by the reflection of yourself. But at all times, you will hear the song -- the shepherd's song -- and it will give hope and meaning to your own life's song.
