    In this in-depth biblical biography, Beth Moore takes you on an intimate, exciting journey through virtually every astonishing episode of David's remarkable life. From shepherd, to refugee, to king of Israel, David exhibited the purest virtues and the most heinous sinfulness. But through it all, his relationship with the Lord continued to grow.

    What's the rush?? I've heard of speed reading, but never in audio form. Beth Moore is an experienced video teacher, but she is much more effective in front of an audience. She should have gotten a professional narrator to read this book instead of doing it herself. She reads it waytoofast, barely pausing to take a breath between sentences, much less thoughts, to the point where it doesn't even sink in.

    I own a couple dozen audiobooks, and this is the first time I have ever had to change the settings on my ipod to "slower" so I could actually absorb what I was hearing. The pace is much better at this setting, but the cadence is slightly off, betraying the fact that this is not a professional reader. Unfortunately this also distorts the voice somewhat, sounding slightly like an echo chamber.

    The content seems good, though I'm only about an hour into it and will probably need to start over so I can follow it. I am disappointed in this recording, and wish I had opted for the print version instead.
