Chuck Swindoll's treatment of David, the "man after God's own heart", points out that David's life offers hope to all of us. It shows how devotion doesn't mean perfection--that God loves us in spite of our weaknesses and uses us for his purposes.
Follows the story of David, a young shepherd who becomes a king and a hero of ancient Israel through the power of God.
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.
