About Greg Baker

Greg S. Baker was born in 1975 to a Christian couple. Raised in church all his life, he came to accept Jesus as his Saviour and attended Hyles-Anderson College, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Theology. He was the pastor of an independent Baptist church in northern Colorado for 13 years.

His writing passion pervades nearly every aspect of his life. As a child, he was an avid reader and fell in love with words and their ability to stir the imagination and convey ideas. While in high school, he attempted and completed his first novel only to see it rejected. Despite this setback, he turned his writing skills towards more productive means. It became a tool by which he conveyed his passion for his God and Saviour to the world around him. As a pastor, he used his love for writing to bring to others his nearly twenty years of experience in the ministry, counseling marriages, and healing relationships.

He now resides in Arizona and is continuing his writing ministry alongside his church ministries. He is married to the love of his life, Liberty, and has four incredible boys who alternately remind him of the excitement of youth and the inevitability of the passage of time. He loves playing sports and chess and tinkering around with computers.

He has turned his writing talents into a full-time ministry in the hope that he can honor Jesus Christ far beyond his earthly life. “Life is relationships,” he once explained. “It’s not your things, your possessions, or your money that make life valuable and important. It is your relationships. It is why I do what I do.”

Review by: Life Artist on July 11, 2018 :
This book begins with a young David and quickly moves to his anointing to be the new king of Israel. This is one of my favorite parts of the book and, as many other portions throughout, was portrayed beautifully by the author. The story of David from the Bible has always been one of my favorite’s because God allows David to be portrayed as very human. This book increases that aspect of the story. With all the footnotes including Bible references throughout the story, it is a great way to learn more about the life of these Biblical characters.

My 14 year old son also read it and loved it. He said, “My favorite part of the story was the scene of David’s fight with Goliath. The book helped bring this Bible story to life more.”

Review by: Debbie Bays on July 6, 2018 :
"Anointed" is about David as an older teenager, he is too young to go to war yet. The author introduces his characters by name and relationship to each other; which I found helpful. I felt the author did an excellent job of weaving the characters personalities into the story for example you feel the friendship of Jonathan and David begin to grow; you feel the anxiety of the Israelites when they meet the Philistine's Champion: Goliath. I didn't care for the battle scenes but the author did give a lot insight on warfare of that era. Overall I found the book to be very well written and informative and enjoyed reading it. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the story of David.
