Review # 261: A Heart Like His - Intimate Reflections on the Life of David by Beth Moore

Description: (from Amazon)
     We all go through times when we feel insignificant or times when we feel certain that we have experienced a degree of failure from which there is no return. This is not a reality we experience alone, but is one that a man after God’s heart experienced as well. From shepherd, to refugee, to king of Israel, David exhibited the purest virtues and the most heinous sinfulness, but through it all his relationship with the Lord continued to grow. 
     A Heart Like His looks at this bond of mutual love and admiration between a man who was not unlike any of us and the one true God who is all good and all powerful. Beth Moore walks us through an exploration of David’s incredible life, drawing spiritual insights from a man who boldly fulfilled his divine destiny not merely by what he did, but who he loved and served. Bringing lessons from David’s life to bear on your own, this picture of a man who loved and followed God will help you to serve with a heart focused on Him no matter the circumstance.

     A Heart Like His is a beautifully written story of motivation and devotion, following David throughout his life as a devout servant of God. Beth Moore takes the reader on a well-researched journey through the books of  I/II Samuel and Psalms, creating a vivid picture of the life and times of David. Her honest and personal connection, (as a believer and follower of God), allows readers to contemplate a very personal relationship with the Lord, like that of David's. I found it to be an easy-to-read and welcoming bible study full of scriptural support and helpful review. I will definitely be using this version for further study, especially the questions at the end of each section. David's story actually inspired me to work on my relationship with God, and to renew the strength of my faith. Highly recommended for anyone who would like a better relationship with the Lord. 

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)
