The Life of David

He is described in the words of Scripture like no one else, a person "after God's own heart," and there is more written about him than almost anyone else in the Bible. David's story rivals any movie ever written, rising from humble beginnings to become the most powerful man of his time – and yet much of his story chronicles not only his victories but also his defeats. In the life of David, there is much to learn about what God sees as truly important and how you should live as a result.
