Your entire family will enjoy the inspiring story of David, a young shepherd boy armed only with a slingshot - and the power of faith - who miraculously saves his people from the Philistine giant Goliath. The Philistine champion is unlike anything the Israelite soldiers have ever seen. When David sees the Israelites' fearfulness, he is angered. "Who is that Philistine that he dare defy the armies of the Lord God?" he asks the trembling soldiers. Empowered by the might of God, David challenges the belligerent Goliath to battle and slays the giant. In this story from the Old Testament, narrated by Mel Gibson, goodness and faith prevail over arrogance and brute force, a message as inspiring today as it was 2,000 years ago. A brilliant musical score by Branford Marsalis evokes the charged atmosphere of the Middle East in this moving tale. Ages six and up. Part of the Rabbit Ears award-winning series, The Greatest Stories Ever Told.
