The Making of A Man of God
Alan Redpath

David was a shepherd and a king, a soldier and a poet, a sinner and a saint. He was also a man after God's own heart. In this Christian classic, Alan Redpath blends insights from 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 Chronicles, and Psalms to demonstrate how God shapes those who are responsive to his love. Despite his many faults, David became a man who wondrously understood and reflected the mind of God. Both men and women will find themselves identifying with David's struggles and triumphs, giving them a glimpse of how God is continually shaping them as well.

Great Lives: David: A Man of Passion and Destiny (Great Lives Series)
Charles R. Swindoll

David, unlike any Bible character before him, had the charisma to inspire a great nation. Yet in other ways he was a most ordinary man-often gripped by destructive passion, rocked by personal tragedy, and motivated by political gain. Yet, he is the one character the Bible describes as a "man after God's own heart." In this first volume of the "Great Lives" series Charles Swindoll shows how David proved his love for God many times over in an extraordinary life that left an enduring legacy of faith.

1 Samuel For You (God's Word For You)
Tim Chester

1 Samuel is a book of barrenness and battles, kings and schemes, shepherds and giants. It recounts the history of Israel as it moved from no king, to the king it demanded, to the king God knew his people needed.
 But its greatest excitement lies not in the events and characters, but in the person they all point to. 1 Samuel presents us with a wonderful picture of Jesus. Seeing him in and through this Old Testament book enables us to see him with fresh colour and texture, and see afresh what it means for us to follow him today as our Ruler and Rescuer. 1 Samuel is a book about ancient times, that speaks directly into ours.
 Written for people of every age and stage, from new believers to pastors and teachers, 1 Samuel For You can be used to:
READ: As a guide to this wonderful letter, exciting and equipping you to live out the truth in your life. FEED: As a daily devotional to help you grow in Christ as you read and meditate on this portion of God s word. LEAD: As notes to aid you in explaining, illustrating and applying 1 Samuel as you preach or lead a Bible study.
 Whoever you are, and however you use it, this is... 1 Samuel For You

2 Samuel For You (God's Word For You)
Tim Chester

2 Samuel is a story of triumph and disaster, both personal and national. It is the account of the rise and fall and rise of a great king, David of Israel. But it is also the story of the God who rules his people, who forgives his people, and who promises to send the King whose greatest fall will bring our eternal rise.

 This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike.
