Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Outstanding history - well written book"

    David is a truly remarkable history, no question about it, and Charles Swindoll does an amazing job of reviewing the various aspects of David's life, personality and events in a very real way.

    Through the book you will certainly laugh, cry and feel each event very vividly - and at the end understand why David was a man according to God's own heart.

    One of those books that makes you want to be a better person, to pursue a different relationship with God, not based on the exterior but a true, personal and deep relationship with the all mighty God!

    I highly recommed!

    "Solid Wisdom to be gleaned"

    Nothing wrong with filling your mind with good teaching from good men like Swindoll.
    David, flawed as any man could be did always end up seeking God passionately through his failure and guilt. We can all take hope in that through our own inevitable failures we need never lose hope or trust in God's love for us. Albeit consequences will come.
    David's story is riddled with human failure. Take heart!
