Overview

"The conversion of a soul is the miracle of a moment; the manufacture of a saint is the task of a lifetime."

The turbulent and triumphant incidents in the life of the shepherd-king David illustrate that truth most clearly. Despite his faults, great and small, David became a man who wondrously understood and reflected the mind of a perfect God.

Beloved author Alan Redpath brings David to life and shows us how we can learn from a man who was utterly human but reached for the divine. Richly blending insights from 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 Chronicles, and portions of the Psalms, Redpath demonstrates how God shapes those who are responsive to His love, even through times of trial and despair.

Through an understanding of David's great faith in the midst of trouble and tranquility, we can draw closer to God and come into a better understanding of His grace and salvation.

Alan Redpath (1907-1989) left a position as an accountant to answer God's call to preach the gospel. He was pastor of several churches in England before serving as senior minister of the Moody Memorial Church in Chicago, after which he returned to pastor the Charlotte Baptist Chapel in Edinburgh, Scotland.
