The Man After God's Own Heart

The Life of David


David walked with the Lord obediently, though not without serious, disgraceful sin that sowed dysfunction in his family. But David loved God, and God loved David; and God promised to establish David’s kingdom forever (2 Sam. 7:16). Scripture calls him “a man after [God’s] own heart” (Acts 13:22), and this issue of Israel My Glory explores David’s fascinating life story.

IMG In Depth: Check out an exclusive interview with Steve Conover about his article, "The Sweet Psalmist of Israel."
