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!

His heart over actions

Mr Swindoll is an excellent Bible teacher. This book is an example of God revealing truth through his teaching. It was encouraging to see that David, although he was a man with a life of poor actions, was a man after God's heart. God sees our desires, and although we continually fail He Loves Us in spite of it because of who he is. David wanted righteousness, made poor decisions, and yet God counted him righteous because of his desires.

Another Banger

Michael Kramer I have come to find out is a great orator. Chuck is a wonderful author and says it how it is. This doesn't replace scripture but sure is a helpful tool to use as I study it! Thanks to you both!

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!

Great Lives: David: A Man of Passion and Destiny.

Mr. Swindoll brought the word of God to life. Mr. Swindoll's gift has been used once again to share his passion for God's word with a hungry audiences. Keep-up the good work.
