An interesting perspective on a familiar Bible story. Certainly could have happened.

I noticed a couple inaccuracies from the story (Goliath made that same threat forty days in a row before David came, for instance), but they are minor.

The faith of Goliath in his god made this story even more powerful.
Very creative perspective here. Interesting idea that Goliath was an outcast with his own people... makes him seem more human you know? I was a tad confused at the beginning (forty animals on his back or forty consecutive sacrifices?), but things cleared up nicely. Really liked the ending.
Hi Karuna. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Hollow Giant, actually did very well in the Empty and Full Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 3, placing 7th in that Level.

There were a lot of entries this week, and the competition is always intense in Level 3, so you deserve a pat on the back. :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August. It’s going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement. (If I’ve already mentioned that to you, forgive me. We’re just so excited about letting members know about this great gathering.)

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
I loved how I was drawn in without really knowing what was happening and then the wonderful "ah-ha" when it clicked! :) Great job with the unexpected perspective!
