The Mercury calls David J. Ferreira, "a top historical writer."
Professor S. W. van Heerden (Department of Old Testament and Ancient Near Eastern Studies): "The Old Testament scholar, Walter Brueggemann, has pointed out that "David is one of those extraordinary historical figures who has a literary future. That is, his memory and presence keep generating more and more stories." David Ferreira's book, David, is precisely such a new story."
E-Church review: "David J. Ferreira succeeds brilliantly in reconstructing the most important historical, social and political circumstances of the times of one of the most important Israelite kings, David and his contemporaries."
The Cape Times: "The portrayal of David is classic..."
The Sunday Tribune: "If you're expecting a tepid, stale retelling of historical events, think again. Ferreira unwraps the biblical tale with a stark, gripping account of King Saul's desperate, death-like grip on his throne... Ferreira uncovers the courage and strength this warrior [David] faces as his destiny strips him of everything he once held dear."
Impact Radio: "Well written, well researched, as well as, and at times even better than Taylor Caldwell, Francine Rivers, C Lloyd Douglas and AH Venter."
What readers are saying about David: The Warrior King...
Samantha Govender, "Reading your book, it felt like I was there in every scene, the way you captured every detail with the dress and scenery is just incredible!"
Laetitia Diedericks, "Before I knew it, I was experiencing Saul's confusion and feelings of failure, and David's feelings that he is destined for great things. After reading this book I understand the history better, because it feels like I know the characters. This book is very well written..."
Hartman Beyl, "The suspense was very thick in the parts where David had to take flight from Saul. I will read one of your books anytime."
Sherry Taylor, "Thank you so much for the writing of DAVID, THE WARRIOR KING. This book "resurrected" him [David] in my heart. Thanks for your study and your ministry of writing."
Sanet Smith, "The "realness" of the characters, the absolute soul and life that you have given them, makes this one of the best I have read in a long time..."
