Royal pathway or corporate ladder, the road to success is paved with repentance.
King David was a deeply flawed man, yet he became one of the greatest leaders in history. His story reminds us that we are all imperfect and subject to tragic failure, but that God can still use us when we humbly and sincerely seek forgiveness. Though forgiven, David paid for his sins dearly-particularly in the life of his family. But, he never resigned himself to a life of despair as did his predecessor, King Saul, who ended his life by committing suicide. The challenges David faced are the same we face as men today. But by learning from David's weaknesses and failures, we can avoid his pitfalls. And when we fail, we can learn from God's grace in David's life.
The Men of Character series highlights the lives of men in the Bible and demonstrates what we can still learn from their relationships-both with God and man. Each of these Bible characters faced trials, frustration, and failure, yet they were inspired by God to achieve great goals. In a world where Christian role models seem increasingly rare, this series reminds us that some of the most worthy examples of godly character are still the biblical figures who brought power, wisdom, and inspiration to God's people throughout the ages. Principles flow from their lives that will guide us through the maze of challenges we face in today's world and can help us to emerge victoriously.Publishers Description

|David : Seeking God Mar 15, 2007|
|This is a great book of David. It brings out David's worship, his failures, and his repentance. We all can learn from David.|
|A great series Feb 10, 2006|
|I am working my way through this series and just finished this book and the one on Joshua. The text is great for laymen who need to brush up on basic bible stories and events that we've heard since early days in Sunday School but have forgotten over time. It is great for day-to-day application. Getz does a great job of illustrating the meaning behind the stories. I am reading Elijah now and recommend it as well. |
