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.

The humble shepherd David later became the great King David, spoken of in the Bible. Michael Kramer contrasts young David's sins and poor choices with his later courage and devotion to God--which led to his being described as ''a man after God's own heart.'' After Kramer's versatile range and skill depicts David's mighty battle with Goliath, Swindoll advises listeners to use their personal memories of past victories for battles with their own giants. With succinct clarity Kramer delivers additional spiritual tips from the author: Don't fight using your own strength--rely on the Lord. Don't abuse God's grace. Listen when God says no. Don't be intimidated or overly sensitive. Trust God, pray, and see through the ''eyes of faith.'' G.D.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
