A Heart Like His: Intimate Reflections on the Life of David by Beth Moore

3 out of 5  ***

Beth Moore recounts David's life in the Bible and describes how he demonstrates the best and the worst of mankind as a sinner and the apple of God's eye. This book elaborates on scripture to show the qualities necessary to please God, to praise God, and to repent wholeheartedly when the transgressions and iniquities occur as they do with David. David is the the best example of one who does not give up on God, one who attributes all of his success and glory to God, and one who receives the unconditional love of God. Beth Moore points out that David conscientiously shepherds his sheep as a boy and continues that considerate protection for his people as a man. In times of trial and desperation, David finds a way, with his faith in the Lord, to come out better because of it. In this way God hones the brave David into a man after His own heart.
