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.

    "Encouraging word"

    Our struggles of feeling inferior are put into perspective. Knowing that I can be used by God for something great is a powerful word spoken into my life. Being looked over and under appreciated had become the norm. I'm glad to know God can use me, my simple life, for work in His great plan.

    "Amazing and Inspirational Book!"

    I will definitely listen to this book again! I haven't experienced a book this touching and practical in a long time. Will be buying the hard copy too for recording the questions at the end.

    "Enlightening, Transformative & Life-giving Must Read!"

    Read it twice and loved every word! I, too, have felt like David "A Number 8" most of my life, so I totally resonated with the characteristics and stories shared within the book; it was another reminder that "I'm not the only one!" Even more
    compelling is the wisdom, encouragement and incredible faith that fills each page. The pages of the book come to life bringing hope, laughter, a few tears, but most importantly the ministry on each page has the power to create transformation, empowerment and healing for the wounded, least of these, marginalized & those who've ever felt overlooked or "forgotten." Thank you Pastor Gray for being you in every way and for sharing your ministry, heart and life's journey! Because of you, this book, your gifts and your many sacrifices, I, and countless others are "the better"!

    "Powerful"
    Where does I Am Number 8 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    John's book ranks number 1 among all the audiobooks I've listened too so far.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Am Number 8?

    There wasn't "one" memorable moment. The entire experience is moving and powerful.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book had me in tears of joy. I am 53 years old: 5+3; I am number eight. I sang with John for a brief moment in Cincinnati. I knew he was going far. He is the same humble man, loving God, that he's always been. I am so happy for his success and blessings. I'm not surprised that his story reaches back to give me exactly what I need at this moment in my life.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you, John.

    "For All The Number 8's, What a gift we've been Given"

    Thank You Pastor John Gray for living and sharing your life, your Real life, with all of us. I believe this gives great insight into any person called to, or active in a Ministry, a behind the scenes look at what God does for his Kingdom, in the lives of people who are the 8's.

    "Inspiration, practical, cross cultural & spiritual"

    John Gray uses humour to mask really impactfull advice borne through overcoming personal adversities. He has no Holly than Thou tone, but a tone of someone who has and is going through challenges to become the best gift God made him to be in a world full of hurt. I recommend this eBook even to persons of other faiths and cultures, for pain and overcoming it has no boundaries.

    "More than what I expected!"

    John Gray beautifully dissects the life of David and shows parrallels between David's life and ministry and his life and ministry. Filled with humour and honesty, this book blew me away and made me realise that my time in the field is just as (if not more) important as time in the palace. God has a plan for your life! In every season He is equipping you for where He's taking you! My first audible read and it was such a great one!
