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.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Dead Dog Like Me, go HERE.

Oh my, this was quite a read....I was entertained throughout the entire book.  I only have problems reading the word "Mephibosheth" because I could never pronounce it correctly in my mind!

I all respect, my problem was really quite small compared to Nick's.  His problems were of a much more serious nature.

Imagine hurting your family pet and becoming a public figure because of it.

Imagine surviving an accident that you definitely should NOT have, only to find that you're someone else entirely.

Imagine that you're that other person in a time many many many years prior to your actual existence.

Poor Nick.  At times I was thinking I would lose my mind if I were him, maybe he did in a way.

Waking up from his accident was a bit confusing for him, poor guy.  Sometimes things happen for a reason, and as you read you'll find the reasons....be prepared for quite a journey!

Loved this book, something fresh and different.  Quite entertaining.
