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.

    " This was the first book in a great series by Swindoll. I love the idea of these biblical biographies. I can't wait to read the next one. I learned a lot about David. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trooper1048 | 1/29/2014

    " A very good christian book to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Jr. | 1/27/2014

    " This book gives us an in depth look at David's life. David was truly a man of Passion and Destiny. What better way to see Romans 8:28 in action than to look at the life of the man that the Bible declares as being after God's own heart. Swindoll's entire book series is great and very helping in providing spiritual insight encouragement through the life of biblical characters. I have read through it 3 times and each time I seem to glean more and more. "

    " Hmmmm......long on story short on substance "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 1/6/2014

    " This book was so awesome. It goes through the whole life of King David. Chuck Swindoll just has a way with telling the story. I learned so much and this book really gave me an easy basis to remember and build on when learning about David's life from other sources or just when I'm reading any part of the bible about or from him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beez Beasley | 12/13/2013

    " Once again, Swindoll introduces me to a biblical character more indepth than through my earlier readings through the bible. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Job Dalomba | 12/6/2013

    " Loved it the first time I read it. Then I looked back through and didn't really care for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 8/18/2013

    " Great book. Gives you an in depth look at King David's life, and reasons why God said he was a man after his own heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 7/15/2013

    " I love Chuck Swindoll's books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brittnee | 6/8/2013

    " The book seemed poorly written, the points made were based too frequently on conjecture, and none of his observations were either revealing or of help to me. However, I did only read through the first few chapters before surrendering the book back to its shelf. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 11/26/2012

    " Have read this one twice and have gone back to refer to it many, many times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristiann | 8/30/2012

    " This is a great book... It's helpful to stop and really mull over some of the events in David's life. Can't wait to read through those passages in the Bible now with a deeper appreciation of the people and events. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathaileen | 8/9/2012

    " David was an extraordinary man, with his intelligence, good looks, literary and musical talents, as a warrior, and as king. He was also an ordinary man dealing with destructive passion and family tragedy. Through all of his life he was a "man after God's own heart". Devotion doesn't mean perfection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dane Nelson | 8/5/2012

    " Excellent Book. Chuck Swindoll keeps it simple yet so deep. He opens things, details, that we often gloss over. I would read this again and again. I recommend this to every Christian, especially Cristian men. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin carpita | 2/11/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danny | 8/6/2011

    " The book was ok. I find Swindol's writing style just a little too casual. Some people might like that. Every time he would quote from F.B. Meyers, I was left wishing I was reading his book instead of Swindol's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam Hylbert-eder | 7/23/2011

    " Easy read biography on David I enjoy how Swindoll tells all the biographies. It is great to read these and then read the bible accounts again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee | 7/2/2011

    " Charles Swindoll tells the story of David from being a young shepherd to being the Kind. He relates the events of King David's life: achievements and mistakes. Biblical commentary on David and his relationship with God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Z | 5/3/2011

    " AS usual, Swindoll can make the most distant figures seem like family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jasmine | 4/8/2011

    " I understand now why David is said to be "the man after God's own heart" "
