ABOUT THE BOOK: King David's imprint on the history of Israel is significant. Scripture reveals that he was a "man after God's own heart." We see David as a young shepherd boy, a friend of Jonathan, and a servant to King Saul. Ultimately, we follow his journey as King of Israel. Many of the episodes from his life are set within the context of his often complicated family, affording opportunities to see David's personal successes as well as his heartbreaking failures. The scriptural account of his life provides many insights and reveals that biblical manhood is a noble pursuit achievable even in the most challenging of situations. The men contributing chapters to this book are godly men who shepherd God's people as pastor. They have a unique perspective on the challenges confronting men in their congregations. As they lay the lens of scripture over David's life experiences and build a bridge to the experiences confronting men today, they provide wise biblical counsel to help men develop a passion for becoming godly men of faith personally, in their homes, and in their communities. **** ABOUT THE EDITOR: Charles A.
