He Was the Runt of the Family Kept With the Sheep But God saw something special in David when nobody else did, and called him to the throne. He was a shepherd. Military hero. Outlaw. King. Adulterer. Murderer. Penitent father. But most of all he was a man after God's own heart. David had an instinct for the divine. He poured out his passion for God in song. He danced before God. He wept before God. As a result, Scripture says more about him than about Christ. Artists have sculpted him. Libraries of books have been written about him. All because at the center of David was God. This volume, the first of three, covers the story of David through his friendship with Jonathan. Passion is catching. Let David's God-saturated life fan the flames of faith. All of us, sometimes, just go through the motions. As you read, may David's passion for God become yours, and your heart like His.
