I used this book in bible college when I took the course in Samuel. The author brought out events from David's life and applied them practically for us today. This would be a great read for men and women as they learn what God wants in a servant.
Dr. Redpath's classic book on the life of David is undoubtedly one of the most influential books I have ever read. Loaded with spiritual truths and illustrations which have real, living applications in our lives today, this book tells us many things about this great character from the OT. More is written about David in the OT than any other person and Dr. Redpath's incisive and compelling look into the life of the man after God's own heart will show what we all need to know to take that path--right into the heart of God.This book will quickly become a favorite of anyone who reads it and meditates on this wonderful exposition of the life of David.
Redpath provides some very unique insights into the life of David in this book. As Redpath notes God does not hide the warts of his disciples but shows them for what they are human. This is a very encouraging and, at times, convicting book. Well worth the read.
