This is the first of a two volume study of the life of David. Continuing through 2 Samuel 5, with an optional study on psalm 40, it is for people who are lonely, depressed, afraid, joyful, sorrowful, pressured, discouraged, successful, faithless, obedient, or disobedient. This volume deals with the preparation of David to become God's own king over Israel. At least twenty years passed between David's anointing and his coronation; he learned to deal with the pressure of uncertainty. Fisherman Bible studies are among the most popular on the market.

David--impetuous, sensitive, bold, poetic, compassionate, utterly human. What can we learn from this young warrior-king of long ago? And how could God call David a "man after his own heart" even though he was a "man of blood" and an adulterer? Though David sinned greatly, he also loved greatly. By observing and learning from David's character and action, we too can become God's kindred spirits, men and women "after God's own heart."
