Raised in obscurity, then shooting to prominence in the nation of Israel, David became a powerful figure and everyone loved him—well, not quite everyone. Read about his battles, his triumphs, and also his troubles in this engaging, easy-to-use guide.
Michael Bentley treats the life of David in a simple, straightforward fashion, never losing sight throughout of the practical significance he has for us, and constantly holding before us David’s greater Son, the Lord Jesus. A very good and satisfying book!
—Roger Ellsworth, Pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church, Benton, Illinois
… a book which is full of wisdom
—Chris Porter, Minister, Easthampstead Baptist Church, England
