Product Description

It's the stuff of legends. An unknown, unlikely-looking kid defiantly takes on the ultimate enemy weapon - an enormous, unconquered super-warrior. He sets out unprotected and alone, yet astonishingly, he slaughters the evil giant - the enemy is routed and David wins a complete victory for his people. It's easy to see why the story of David and Goliath is still so popular. We love David the hero, the shepherd boy who became king of Israel, chosen by God as a man 'after His own heart'. But what about David the despised 'worm', the hot-tempered bully, the weak father, the lustful playboy and the coldly-calculating murderer? Did God really know what He was doing when He chose David? This Good Book Guide on the life of David reveals the secret of David’s success and the reasons for his many failures. But it also uncovers the greater story of a better hero. In just six sessions, you will learn how this weak Israelite king points us to the ultimate king, Jesus — despised like the ‘worm’ of David’s psalm, yet finally winning the ultimate victory for His people over sin and death. Includes:

  • Talkabout: discussion starters
  • Investigate: inductive study questions
  • Explore More: (optional) questions that connect the text with other parts of the Bible
  • Apply sections
  • Getting Personal: opportunities for each member
  • Prayer: thanksgiving and requests based on the text studied.
