David was a man after God's own heart . . .

What does it mean to be someone "after God's own heart?" David, King, psalmist and shepherd, gives us a picture with his own life.

In many ways he is an extraordinary role model, a man who was fully human but exceeded expectations and pointed others towards God. While the other side of David is most ordinary showing a life filled with destruction, chaos, tragedy and his personal struggle with sin. How then 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?" David's life offers hope to all of us. It shows that God can do extraordinary things through ordinary men and women. And David offers an insightful perspective on what it means to be truly a man, to become like David―men after God's own heart.

In this study David will delight and disappoint you. At times you will desire to be just like him while at others you will want to turn and run! The Life of David is one of the most colorful examples of manhood in all of Scripture. You will be introduced to select key characteristics of David's life but unlike David, we have time to make our lives right before God and to lovingly lead our homes.

This interactive study features eight weeks of individual study materials with a leader’s guide and suggested teaching plans at the back of the book.

From Brad
During my tour of active duty in the US military, one of my close friends shared a few insights from a book on the life of David by AW Pink. It pricked my interest then and continues to influence my thinking today. This study is a result from continued learning and meditation on this fascinating man of God.

Next to Jesus, the Scriptures cover more of David's life than any other man. David, Israel's greatest king, is one of the most amazing men who ever lived. He is known as being a man after God's own heart (1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22) yet his life is filled with similar ups and downs as those faced by most men today. In some situations he displayed deep faith and trust in God while other times he sounds depressed and discouraged. In other situations he made horrible decisions that impacted his family, his work, and his community. Through all of his ups and downs, he still maintains his faith. Consequently, there are things in David's life which we should emulate and things which we should avoid. Therein lies the hope for God's men today.

This Bible study was developed to help you study the Scriptures, discover the greatness and flaws of this king, and make applications so you can emulate the godly parts of David’s life and avoid the harsh consequences of disobedience.

From Brian
It is unique in the scriptures that we have the opportunity to get to know a character as well as we get to know David. Starting in chapter 16 of I Samuel and through the balance of this book, all of II Samuel and even in I Kings we see the life of David. Starting in chapter 11 of I Chronicles to the end in chapter 29 we read his story with different details. Approximately half the Book of Psalms is written by David and much of this corresponds with the events of his life. The life and works and writings of Solomon remind us of David as well. The quantity of text helps us see this man from his early days as a young son of Jesse to his final days as a father giving a charge to his own son.

The quantity of his story is helpful but it is the quality of the story that draws us to David. The scriptures give us access to private conversations and some of David’s inner most thoughts. We become acquainted with feats of bravery as well as moments of cowardice. We see a man who is tender and compassionate with others as well as the warrior who is ruthless against his enemies. The same man who passionately loves his God also has moments of denial and disconnect. The father and husband who is emotionally invested in his family is also the same man who abdicates his responsibilities resulting in significant dysfunction in his family and a questionable legacy.

All of this helps us relate to David and embrace him in many ways as a man we might follow. Who does not want to follow a charismatic leader that is fueled by genuine passion to serve the Living God? We each understand, like David, what it is like to have sweet moments of success and sour moments of personal failure. The honesty and transparency of the scriptures makes a bible study on the life of David so compelling. We study and digest true stories of a man who has gone before us. This bible study is designed to engage you with God and His Spirit through the story of a man He selected to follow Him and lead His people.

A study of the life of David will lead be a blessing to both men and women, old and young, mature or new in their faith. This imperfect man gives hope to the one who desires to follow and know the same One True God. The Apostle Paul, in his travels as a leader of the emerging Christian Church, references in Acts 13 how Samuel rebuked Saul and informed him that God had raised up a man after his own heart. This study is designed to point you in that same direction. It is our prayer that your heart, and not just your head, would turn to Almighty God as a result of your study.
