Wellington Author Offers A Different Take On David And Goliath

Nicholas Novella of Wellington shares a new perspective of the Bible’s David and Goliath story in his latest juvenile fiction, The Shield Bearer, an action-adventure book set for nationwide release this month.

The Shield Bearer introduces a young soldier, Sisera, who fights for the Philistine Empire against Abraham’s sons. He trains with the giants and becomes friends with Goliath, who asks him to be his shield bearer. Miracles happen, and Sisera’s world is turned upside down.

Being a believer in many gods, he starts to consider the possibility that there may be only one true God.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting www.barnesandnoble.com or www.amazon.com.

Novella, who works as an electrical engineer and a web developer, has dedicated himself to writing Bible-based stories around characters people seldom think about.

Aside from The Shield Bearer, Novella’s other book is My Robot Named Spot.
