Beauty of Ashes

For many years I have wondered if my heart was cursed or designed to carry...I now understand my David's heart and the purpose behind the gift of its design. What I once thought was a burden workout cause, I now understand to be the process of unveiling God's diamond in the rough-the diamond of submitting through faith & trust in response, thought, and choice.

Very heartfelt and timely message

This book is short but powerful. It addresses a much needed subject and human attitude flaw we all have: selfishness. If you are hurting in ministry I highly recommend this book. It will help you turn your attention and faith back to God where it belongs.

Great Book with Great Lessons

This story line applies in real life settings. I would highly recommend to anyone struggling within the confines of their current leadership. The story grips from the very beginning (the prologue) and never lets you down.

My only complaint is the lack of depth of the reader's performance. I have read this book and the audio performance leaves something to be desired.

The third person point of view works well with the story as well as with the lessons being presented. It's this type of book that will push you toward maturity.

Personal

Did you ever just want Jesus to sit down with you face to face, to mentor you in some way? This book is such a comforting reproof. Sounds like an oxymoron, but when Jesus' love surrounds you, you can take the correction from the restorative intent of the Father's love. God's perfect love is so rare to see and experience like in this book....and that is sadly the missing witness to this lost world Jesus said would be our credentials - our credibility - for revealing WHOSE we are, GOD'S PERFECT Love between His disciples! Since judgement begins with the house of God, the anointed message in this book can show us how to begin overcoming the weeds in our hearts, and live the original purpose for God's kingdom and will on earth as it is in heaven. Thank You Jesus for making it possible!!!

Beautiful...

A wonderful rendition of the story of King David from the Old Testament. All should hear this, man, woman, follower and leader. The moral inclinations abound; who really understands the power of the Lord and what it is that we must do. Listen carefully and ponder to what is mentioned in each part. Take heed to the words of the Lord and if you are lucky enough you might hear and answer.

My Time Well Spent

I have always been fascinated with The Life of King David, but this here, a read dramatization gives introspection to His Heart and those around Him, and more importantly possobly GOD'S thoughts towards us. I am a new fan of Gene Edwards fact-based fiction and literature, and Paul Michael oration.
