David A Man After God's Own Heart Author:Charles R. Swindoll Come meet the man whose psalms have often become your prayers. Follow his fervent pursuit of God as a shepherd boy, warrior, and king. And learn from his life about the grace that can transform every sinner into a person after God's own heart.
David, unlike any Bible character before him, had the charisma to inspire a great nation. Yet in other ways he was a most ordinary man-often gripped by destructive passion, rocked by personal tragedy, and motivated by political gain. Yet, he is the one character the Bible describes as a "man after God's own heart." In this first volume of the "Great Lives" series Charles Swindoll shows how David proved his love for God many times over in an extraordinary life that left an enduring legacy of faith.
Perhaps the most popular Od Testament charactger, David is a study in contrasts: an unknown shepard lad who became the king, a rugged warrior who wrote tender psalms, a strong leader who was weak at home, a man of God with a rebellious son. This series introduces you to the facts revealed in Scripture and how they relate directly to us today. No biography could be more timely. Although David is dead, his life still speaks.
