Best speaking/reading voice ever!

—GLORIA GAITHER

CELEBRATING the 10th ANNIVERSARY of the release of MAJESTIE: THE KING BEHIND THE KING JAMES BIBLE, This new title, I Ridde My Soule of Thee at Laste makes a long-awaited departure from David's former published books. Meant for mainstream consumption, this new historical novella is inspired by years of reading in early modern English history. The subtitle offers a hint at the subject matter:

 

THE TREWE ACCOUNTE OF SHAKESPERES SECRET COMMISSION IN THE CREATION OF HIS MAJESTIES OLDE AND NEWE TESTSMENTS & THE AMITIE BETWEEN WM. SHAKESPERE AND SIR FRANCIS BACON. THE FINAL DAYES OF WILLIAM SHAKESPERE INCLUDING HIS CRUELLE AND PITIELESSE MURDER BY FRIEND FELLOW POET AND RIVAL MASTER BEN JONSON.

 

It is a probable fiction. "This could have happened."

To call it a biography is actually to conceal the brilliance of what Teems has achieved. 

[Review of TYNDALE]

—Leland Ryken, Wheaton College

Teems is a great storyteller, and he transports the reader back to the Tudor era with great style.

—Washington Times

Engrossing and entertaining... a delightful read in every way. [Review of MAJESTIE]

—Publisher's Weekly

Teems leads you inexorably into the depths and heights which often and unexpectedly surprise in their 

implication. It gives the reader an appetite. [Review of TYNDALE] 

—Dr. Bill Cooper, Tyndale Society, London

David Teems' work is luminous,glorious. He sets words 

in place like a jeweler  sets diamonds. Read slowly. Pause often. Don't lose one word of this offering. 

David's pen is studied and steady.

—Patsy Clairmont

 

 

 

One of the best written books I've ever read. It's a page turner. [Review of MAJESTIE].

—Jim Cantelon, 100 HUNTLEY STREET

Articulate and evocative. David Teems has a marvelous way of bearing his soul n his words, in letting you in his heart and mind.

Few modern writers can capture the soaring spirit of the writing of the age, David Teems does!

—Reader review of MAJESTIE

. . . a just plain fun read. Teems is masterful at presenting history that reads like fiction.

—Reader review of MAJESTIE

This is a wonderful, wonderful book! David Teems is a writer that knows how to use words to their fullest advantage. Reading it is like eating gourmet food rather than fast food.

—Reader review of TYNDALE

Significantly, David Teems has captured the story with eloquence, wit and wisdom, as inspired as the man, Tyndale, himself. Rarely are we treated to the kind of keen insights and revelation that Teems brings to a work that he has crafted with great passion and love for his subject. Hard to put down . . . 

—Reader review of TYNDALE

The narrative, while descriptive, is clean and uncluttered, and imminently readable. But the prayers, well, those are pure poetry...rich, luscious, honest, vigorous, and potent...

an elegant distillation. 

—Reader review of AND THEREBY HANGS A TALE

 

  

 

In April, 2017, Teems appeared on NATIONAL GEOGRAPHICS new series ORIGINS: THE JOURNEY OF HUMANKIND. The episode was called THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL. The segment David was featured in is called THE DEATH OF A HERETIC. Teems spoke on the life, work, and martyrdom of William Tyndale. For more, and to see the clip from the show, go to the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC page on this site. 

Keeping his music alive with his writing life, below is a picture of Teems on stage at the Grand Ole Opry (Ryman Theater) playing with actor/singer Jonathan Jackson [CMT's NASHVILLE]. Jackson is singing a song Teems wrote ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN, a song that will be featured in Teems's 2021 novel, ASK FOR ME TOMORROW (Budding Grove).
