David and Goliath
The first book in The Guardian Angel Chronicles by Bryan Hathaway is David and Goliath.
David Liberty is an old man. He lives in a nursing home, alone and physically failing, although he is mentally still sharp.
One day he is visited by an angel named Joelle who offers him a second chance at life. David must prove to God that he loves Him and believes in Him. David will do this by helping other people to reignite their faith so they do not lose their eternity.
As a younger man, David motivated business people through powerful speeches. But now he will have to touch people through his actions, not his words, as he will make his visits without the ability to speak.
So Joelle temporarily releases David from his nursing home bed and drops him into the lives of various families. She doesn't tell him what is inhibiting their walk with God so he has to figure out what is troubling them and then help them to draw closer to God to overcome the problems.
And of course he has opposition to face - just as we all do in our daily walk.
Quite an interesting read.
