Publisher's Summary

All anyone wants to hear about is the giant.

For those who never knew the man, only his legend,

It’s all they ever ask.

Did he do this? Did he say that? Was he afraid?

Was he beautiful?

Do they think his life narrows down to this one thing,

sums up in this single moment?

Do they think running toward danger explains him?

Clearly, they never knew him.

So I will tell.

But I will have to take you back there to make you understand.

So begins Mark Buchanan’s trilogy of novels vividly recreating the life and times of David, a man of many contradictions - poet, killer, God-lover, adulterer, brigand, fugitive, war hero. It’s a tale told through many eyes, those who love David and those who don’t, in details both intimate and epic. Three thousand years after he lived, David: Rise reminds us why he still captures our imagination and rivets our attention.

Terrifically entertaining


Zach Kumaishi’s masterful narration and subtle character voices bring David: Rise to life. Mark Buchanan’s remarkable version of King David’s life story reads like a great adventure tale, full of flawed heroes, epic battles, and despicable villains. I look forward to listening to the next book of this trilogy.
