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!

    "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.

    "This book is AMAZING! I always knew I was an 8!"

    I have always believed and trusted in God- but often wondered why I was more happy secluded , alone and why I felt greatness coming but it wasn't my time yet. Now it has a name, I have an identity, I am NUMBER 8!

    The book was fun, touching, held wonderment and insight, I think I knew deep somewhere, but am so happy it was put into words.

    THANK YOU JOHN GRAY! Please don't wait another 17 years 🤗

    "Life Changing restorative read! I am number 8"

    All I can do is thank God for the word God has placed in John Gray! His anointing is very costly. God's Glory shines throughout the whole book. I didn't not want it to end!

    "AWESOME! A must read over & over!!!"
    If you could sum up I Am Number 8 in three words, what would they be?

    AWESOME, EYE-OPENING, FUNNY


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that John read the book himself and used his comedy to solidify truths in the Word.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when John talked about the faith of his mother and how through her experiences she encouraged his faith as well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved when John was talking about the biggest battle that we have is in our thought-life and how to combat those battles.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love this book because it helped me understand myself and I will revisit this book annually.

    "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!
