- David: A Man of Passion and Destiny
- By: Charles Swindoll
- Narrated by: Michael Kramer
- Length: 11 hrs and 30 mins
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!

Outstanding book - highly recommended!
Outstanding book! Like him or not, he was the president of the USA for 8 years and had to endure probably the worst challenges a president can face - from natural disasters, to economic crisis, 2 wars among others.
In this book he reveals what was behind the decisions he had to make - and by revealing his side of the story you will discover a man with moral principles, clear goals and someone who knew where he wanted to take the country.
He is not afraid of showing the decisions he got wrong, his weakness nor to tell exactly what people did or said, which also reveals interesting facts about other global leaders.
A well written book that makes you feel inside the White House and participating in great moments of "history", in addition to revealing what happened behind the scenes. One of the best books I've read lately.
