This has been one of my favorite Bible study reads of the last couple years. It has quite a few things that make it stand out. One is that I like Beth Moore's style. She takes any subject and makes you feel as if you're sitting in her living room and talking about it with just her and maybe some snacks and a nice cup of coffee or tea. She has a conversational approach that I like. She also has great subject matter. The life of David shows the best and worst of man. It gives us this wonderful example of how we can seek God in good and bad times and how God can use us in spite of our weakness - and oftentimes because of it. There is so much treasure to learn from how David honored God and how he failed as well. Even the way the book is organized is brilliant. The chapters are short so you can easily fit them into any busy schedule. She has included any necessary Bible verses so you don't need to have anything but the book in order to do the study (though she encourages you to use your own Bible to read more passages). I also love how the study is arranged in order by how the events played out historically - so you can see how one decision led to another and so on. This is the kind of study that is approachable and useful for Christians in many stages of their walk with Christ. It is straightforward and simple enough for new Christians, but there is enough meat and challenging material for those who have loved the Lord for many years. I want to thank the publisher for providing my copy. It did not influence my review.

This book is a five star. I have not joined any bible study groups but if you have been reading this blog, you know that I have read a few Christianity themed books. Some are fiction that added God subtly, others preaches and uses fear like you will go to hell or be left behind if you don't believe. In this book Beth Moore, an American evangelist, teacher, author and founder of Living Proof Ministries have a writing style that makes it sound like she is talking, discussing and teaching you about the life of David through different bible scriptures and her personal experiences. A friend at church once asked casually if I know David and I answered no because all I know about David is that he was the shepherd who sling shot Goliath and became the King of Israel. I don't have any in depth knowlege about him. So when I was contacted by Shelton Interactive if I would like to review this book, I agreed right after I read what the book is about. Here Beth Moore will tell us about Eli, Samuel, Hannah, King Saul and Jonathan. She will discussed how a harp player shepherd will become the anointed one and be the second King of Israel. How he survived being persecuted by King Saul and his relationship with Jonathan. How he rose to be King and ruled over Israel. We will learn his family life. That even being the chosen one, David was still human and sinned against God repeatedly. She describes the ups and downs in Davids life until his last breath at the age of 70, a King who have ruled for 40 years and was succeeded by Solomon, his son with Bathsheba. I would recommend this book to anybody, any age who would like to learn more about David. The last part of the book is a list of review questions great for bible study groups or anybody who would like to reflect on the Life of David. I got this book free from B&H Publishing through Shelton Interactive in exchange for an honest review.

Although I have "flirted" with Beth Moore books and Bible studies in the past, this is the first time I have ever sar down and read one of her books in its entirity. My mom has been through several Beth Moore studies, and allusions are always made to this fantastic Bible teacher. And all I can say is that this book more than fulfilled my expectations. I can assure you that this will not be the only time I ever pick this book up. This is a keeper! I grew up in the church, and I am a Bible college graduate. But even I had not considered some of the aspects of David's life that Beth Moore draws out of the Scriptures. This book is not a light read. I recommend taking your time and really letting the Word and its message soak into your soul. I am just a little bit overwhelmed since I read the book in under a week. But even in my reading of it in that time frame, I can highly recommend it. The true merit of a book that is written to be used as a Bible study is whether it touched my heart and soul. I am happy to say it did. Seeing ho2w many times David messed up but always came back to God gives me great hope. It shows just how much mercy God has to give out even in the Old Testament. I was most touched as I read about how David continued to trust even when he did not understand or things did not make sense. It is a message that God has been "pounding into my brain" lately. Tears came to my eyes as I read about how even unjust humiliation and misunderstanding does not mean that you have stepped out of God's will. It may not make sense, and we may never understand why things happen just as they do. But we have to trust that God knows what He is doing. Thank you, Beth, I needed to hear that. I too long for a heart like David. And even in my weaknesses and failings, God can use me! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100% mine.

David was always my favorite character in bible stories. His simplicity as a boy and shepherd, his determination as an anointed by God, his complexity as a king, and above all, his love for God, those characteristics made him a very special person. And author Beth Moore capture all details of his personality in this wonderful and well written book. We clearly note the passion that Beth has for David and how well she introduce all stories related to this character, his Back Story, his friendship with Jonathan, his fight for survival from Saul's persecution, so every aspect of his life is described in details and in such a passionate way that we would have to cheer for David even if we did not like him. Although his life is full of struggles, he always kept his love for God. The book is divided in 9 parts for a total of 52 chapters. Each Part has a Psalm as a theme and the chapters for that part develop the main theme or that part of David's story. At the end of the book we find some Review Questions for us to meditate on the reading, and possible use them in a bible discussion group. This was a magnificent effort from the author who put together this excellent book with a strong message, and I recommend it to the permanent library of any person who enjoys a good reading of biographical nature on a fascinating character. This book was written by Beth More and published by B&H Publishing Group originally in 1999, and was republished in 2003 and 2012, with the same name. The author was kind enough to provide me a copy for reviewing through Shelton Interactive and I was not asked to provide a positive feedback. Opinions here are my own.

This book is beyond the Star-Rating System. Beth is passion personified when it comes to the things of the Lord. I've heard the story of David and studied his life for many years. It amazes me how God continues to give insight, to convict, to encourage, and to challenge my heart with David's life. This is one of those books that will touch your life no matter who you are, where you are or what you are going through.

This book takes the life of David and goes in depth, drawing life lessons in each chapter. I’ve read books by Beth Moore before and enjoyed them. This was another great book. The title describes the book well. It’s hard to write non-fiction and make it interesting to the reader. Beth Moore has that talent. I was impressed and inspired. I learned some new things and was reminded of how much my Saviour loves me. Another great feature is the review questions in the back. It’s great for deeper thoughts or could even be used for a Bible study guide. I would definitely recommend this book. I received this book free of charge from Shelton Interactive in exchange for my honest review.

So much to take in when reading about the man who loved God so fiercefully! Absolutely loved the book. Reminds us that even as sinners we can be a people after the heart of God.

David's life is intimately portrayed and the reader can definitely relate to his struggles and desire to have a better relationship with God. You will develope a deeper understanding of how God works and controls your life. Beth Moore truly has a unique gift for writing and I was deeply touched by her presentation of David's life and what I learned and understand from this study is applied daily in my life. Your attitude and relationship with God will only be strengthened by reading this book.

by Andrea Renee Cox The life of David is a great one to study, because he was such a complex man. He loved God greatly, yet he "fell short," as we all do. He was a shepherd, warrior, king, and a servant. Beth Moore's book A Heart Like His takes an honest, in-depth look at David's life and how we may also learn to have a heart like God's. This book took me through many Scriptures that were familiar to me, but it helped me see them in a new way. Most of all, this book helped me spend more time with the God I love. Do you want to learn more about the life of David and the Almighty God he served? If so, A Heart Like His by Beth Moore is a wonderful place to begin.

Even through ALL his mistakes and valleys, the only thing he was able to do is look up. He could have stayed but GOD meant more to him even through his failure. I'm not perfect but I need to try my best to please God.

Who needs movies and entertainment when you can read all the drama and scandal in the Holy Bible!? :) "A Heart Like His" is an enjoyable and thought-provoking study on King David's (drama-filled, crazy, oh-no-he-didn't) life - it helps shed light on King David's heart, faults, and, most importantly, passion for God. I highly recommend taking Beth Moore's advise in the book to read the scriptures as highlighted in the header of the chapter; I did this and it made the study more meaningful and revelatory for me. As with any study, don't expect to speed though this book - along with reading the scriptures, each chapter gives a lot to digest with enlightening information and applicable life lessons. For me, this book fell just short of 5 stars because, although beautifully written, Beth Moore's writing style in some areas may be a little to gentle for my shoot-it-straight personality.
