Publisher's Summary

King David was a complicated, conflicted man of flesh. But too often he is viewed as an Americanized shepherd boy on a Sunday school felt board or a New Testament saint alongside the Virgin Mary. Not only does this neglect one of the Bible’s most complex stories of sin and redemption, it also bypasses the gritty, life lessons inherent in the amazing true story of David.

Mark Rutland shreds the felt-board character, breaks down the sculpted marble statue, and unearths the real David of the Bible. Both noble and wretched, neither a saint nor a monster, at times victorious and other times a failure, David was, through it all, a man after God’s own heart.

Amazing

Dr. Mark knocked it out of the park. It is comforting to know that inspite our flaws, God still delights in us.

Classic Mark Rutland

I have read a number of Dr. Rutland's books, as well as listening to and watching him preach. He is one that I never wonder if I can trust his theology. He is and always has been solid.
He also has an amazing gift for bringing to life those we've only read about in the Bible. He reminds us that they were real people, not just Sunday School characters. He does that again here and I am very thankful that I decided to give it a listen!

Excellent Book and Outstanding Narrator! The narrator made the book so much more interesting. He has this calm, soft, fluent voice of authority. I really enjoyed listening to this book-twice!

"Great" book..

What a captivating and extraordinary book of the life of David. Dr. Rutland's coloquial verbiage makes it fun and exciting to understand the many facets of David and how he was a man after God's own heart. What is man that you are so mindful of us oh Lord.

God's heart revealed

God Reveals His heart through acknowledging King David's heart. It is a reminder that despite our shortcomings God sees within.
