Worthy Publishing (June 23, 2015)
Max Davis


Max Davis is the author of over twenty books, has been featured in USA Today and Publisher’s Weekly, and has appeared on The Today Show and The 700 Club. He holds degrees in journalism and biblical studies. In addition to his own works, he’s done a variety of ghostwriting and collaboration projects. Max and Alanna have three grown children and a grand baby.


Nick Gregory regains consciousness after a horrific car accident to find he’s been transported back in time and that he has become Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s son and King Saul’s grandson. Aware that he’s experiencing another man’s life, he has to learn fast. When mega-church pastor, Nick Gregory, regains consciousness after a horrific car accident, he’s on the ground in agonizing pain. Nick realizes he is in a bizarre place – a foreign, parched, ancient land, having been transported back in time to 800 B.C. Unbelievably, he is in the body of a prince named Mephibosheth, a son of Jonathan and King Saul’s grandson. Nick is fully aware of who he is and that he’s now living in Mephibosheth’s body, strangely able to speak and understand Hebrew. This experience helps him see that he, like Mephibosheth, is a broken man desperate for God’s outrageous grace and healing (2 Samuel 9:8). Returning to present day, Nick’s experience motivates a changed life.

My Review:
 Nick Gregory's life has made a turn for the worst. He once had a beautiful loving wife and kids, a flourishing church and faith everyone envied. But it all came to and end after his son died. His wife want's a divorce, his congregation isn't so sure of his teachings, and his faith isn't something anyone even wants to speak on. He becomes desperate, so desperate he finds himself with a gun in his hand. He feels his family would be better off without him. So in his Escalade with a pile of concrete on the side of the rode, he is met with a horrible car crash.

He wakes up to sand and heat, with a man calling him Mephibosheth. Nick tries to spout off his normal words of wisdom and finds he is no longer speaking English, no, he’s speaking Hebrew. Filled with both amazement and fear, he is thrown head off into an epic adventure.

Dead Dog Like Me is an amazing novel filled with adventure and action. Max Davis is a wonderful author. I loved how he combined life in the twenty-first century to that in eight hundred B.C. I really enjoyed this book, and I plan on reading many more of his books.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from CFBA.
