Using biblical theology to show the relevance of the life of David to Christian believers today, this book argues that David establishes patterns that find their fulfillment first in Jesus Christand then in the community that bears his name. It challenges believers to pursue God asDavid, the man after God's own heart.
With lucid insights on every page, After God's Own Heart examines the life of David,showing how the Old Testament king relates to anointing, covenant, the temple, and sin. But ultimately, the author shows how David pictures the Messiah to come. The book includes study questions for individual or group study.
