The author has long been fascinated by the stories of David, soldier, king; so powerful, yet so weak and vulnerable. His is the human story exemplified in the life of one man. As his story unfolds there are lessons to be found, he learns, he forgets. David's self-will runs riot followed by his deep repentance and a sense of forgiveness and relief. David becomes every man and every woman. When one looks at David's life and sees themselves, change can happen, and spiritual growth may occur. The author says, "When I read the life of David and then look in the mirror, I feel a sense of relief in knowing that there is hope for me too!"
