David Angus recounts the battle between David and Goliath, the Biblical story that is now synonymous with a titanic challenge, providing a template for many underdog narratives. The gargantuan Goliath is a warrior for the Philistines who challenges the Israelites to a duel for the right to rule over Canaan. No Israelite will fight Goliath, but young David volunteers. Armed with only a few stones, he defeats Goliath, giving victory to the Isralites. Kerry Shale builds palpable suspense in this ultimate battle between good and evil, and his superb performance creates both a terrifying villain and a righteous hero.
This is a story from the Moses and Other Stories from the Old Testament collection.
Here are the main stories from The Old Testament: Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah's Ark, Abraham and Isaac, Moses, The Ten Commandments, David and Goliath, Jonah and the Whale, Daniel and the Lion's Den, and more. In these days where religion plays a diminishing role, it is important that we know the stories of The Bible not least because they appear repeatedly in art, literature, drama, music, and even in films and computer games!
David Angus' informal text especially written for this recording is brought to life by the friendly story-telling talents of Kerry Shale.
