Publisher's Summary

If God can take David - the invisible eighth son of a forgotten family - and turn him into a king, just imagine what magnificent plans he has for redeeming your life.
David was born a number eight - a hidden gem, often overlooked and undervalued by everyone except for God. For David, being a number eight seemed like a curse until the day God transformed him from the unknown eighth son of Jesse into the much-honored king of Israel.
When God sends out an invitation to greatness, his directions don't always make sense to us. You may feel like the most invisible, broken number eight out there, but God sees your hidden value and is growing you for better things. David didn't know it, but his time as a simple shepherd with a dull future did not go unnoticed by God. In David's darkest moments, he was cultivating the kind of gifts, wisdom, and leadership he would need to become a king. Even when you're an underdog in the eyes of the world, God is working behind the scenes to develop you into a king or queen.

Answers to many questions

This was such a profound book for me because it answered questions that I had resolved to just trust God with the answers. I have such a better understanding of how much my childhood was a blessing for me. Why I have this heart that I have, why I have had to travel this, sometimes, treacherous journey. The regrets are much less; in fact, my entire perspective changed: 8 is great!

Worth 17years of Gods story to be written

Thank you John for such a beautiful and Godly book. I can relate on so many points you have unpacked in this book. I have faithfully serve and worshiped my King in all seasons of life and ministry and under the authority of His leaders. I love how much of what you have written explains why I am who I am in Christ, I know my heart and love for others have at times confused those who think pushing your way to the front is the way you get to wear your going. But I just keep moving forward and listen to Gods calling and everything works out for His glory in the end, taking ground, building the kingdom . I love how God can walk with the fatherless, who cold be discounted and forgotten and make such a impact in the life that's willing to be His child and provide a life we could never have dreamed would be ours. Much blessing to you and your family. God is good
