As a result of the changing cultural images of manhood, many men are searching for new ways to understand themselves and their relationships with others, struggling to grow into the fullness of life they desire but have yet to find. Examining how God was at work in the life of David, this book will help men discover new ways in which God may be working in their own lives. This substantive study looks at the life of David and his spiritual relationship with God. Each chapter is built around a particular Old Testament passage relating to his life, with other references. Each chapter concludes with discussion/reflection questions, suggestions for deepening your faith journey and furthering your spiritual growth and prayers. The book has 12 chapters and is appropriate for both group and individual study.
