David was a shepherd and a king, a soldier and a poet, a sinner and a saint. He was also a man after God's own heart. In this Christian classic, Alan Redpath blends insights from 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 Chronicles, and Psalms to demonstrate how God shapes those who are responsive to his love.
Despite his many faults, David became a man who wondrously understood and reflected the mind of God. Both men and women will find themselves identifying with David's struggles and triumphs, giving them a glimpse of how God is continually shaping them as well.

From the Back Cover

"The conversion of a soul is the miracle of a moment; the manufacture of a saint is the task of a lifetime."

The turbulent and triumphant incidents in the life of the shepherd-king David illustrate that truth most clearly. Despite his faults, great and small, David became a man who wondrously understood and reflected the mind of a perfect God.

Beloved author Alan Redpath brings David to life and shows us how we can learn from a man who was utterly human but reached for the divine. Richly blending insights from 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 Chronicles, and portions of the Psalms, Redpath demonstrates how God shapes those who are responsive to His love, even through times of trial and despair.

Through an understanding of David's great faith in the midst of trouble and tranquility, we can draw closer to God and come into a better understanding of His grace and salvation.
