The Bible tells us that David was a man after God's own heart, but what does that mean in practice? David, the Old Testament shepherd, king, and psalmist, offers an answer in the shape of his own incredible life.
Poet, musician, courageous warrior, and national statesman, David distinguished himself as one of God's greatest men. He modeled invincible confidence in the face of impossible circumstances. He made decisions with wisdom and equity. And he wrote with transparent vulnerability and quiet trust. But how well do we really know David?
In Great Lives: David, the first volume in Charles Swindoll's bestselling Great Lives series, Swindoll gives us a closer look at this incredible man who had his fair share of difficulties. Throughout his life, David was gripped by destructive passion, rocked by family chaos and personal tragedy, and motivated by political expediency. Like all of us, David was far from perfect, but Swindoll teaches us that David had the chance to become great when he placed himself at the Lord's disposal.
As Swindoll guides us through David's remarkable life and legacy, he asks and answers key questions along the way, including:
- How did David become the national hero of God's chosen people?
- Why is he the one character in the Bible described as "a man after God's own heart?"
- How can modern believers become people after God's own heart?
Join Swindoll as he teaches us that we can all endeavor to live a life marked by the humility, dependability, and integrity of David.
