The kingdom of Israel faces its greatest threat when the rampaging army of the Philistines marches across its boarders. In the forefront of the invaders is a giant warrior: Goliath. This towering behemoth issues a challenge to the Israelites - he will meet in single combat with one of them. If Goliath is beaten, the Philistines will be servants of the Israelites, but if Goliath wins, the Israelites will be inslaved. For forty days Goliath repeats this challenge, and still no man steps forth to fight for his country's survival. But one boy does: David. Impressed by his display of courage, Saul entrusts the defense of the kingdom to David, whom he knows only as the shepherd boy who sings psalms to him at court. Armed with nothing more then his sling and his faith in God, David walks out to meet his mighty foe.
