Bestselling theologian Eugene Peterson uses vividly told stories from the life of David to illustrate the everyday truths that brings us closer to God."David ought to be a place of rest for us, an assurance that others have struggled with God and watched his holiness work in and out of their lives.... Peterson's retelling of David's story provided me with this rest". -- Christian TodayOf All the Characters in the Bible, None is More human and more fully realized than David. Through the passions, the trials, and the lyrical poetry of this beloved figure, we gain powerful insights into the role of God in our everyday lives.In this challenging inspirational volume, stories from David's epic life, including his youth as a shepherd-poet, his battle with Goliath, his flight from the mad king Saul, and his sin with Bathsheba, illuminate the central themes of faith. Friendship, grief, love, sin, and suffering, as well as sanctuary, beauty, and wilderness, are all examined in the context of David's lifelong journey."{Peterson}... brings the Old Testament world revealingly close to our own century, and he makes vivid the notion that God's purposes are worked out in the ordinariness of specific human lives". -- Publishers Weekly
