David: A Man After God's Heart

David: A Man After God's Heart

Book cover in English In this book, I am willing to show some of King David's story. There is no doubt he was one of the greatest kings of Israel. It is not for nothing that Israel's flag carries King David's star. In many places, he is known as a man after God's heart. I will tell his story in the chronological order, according only to the bible scriptures and annotations for the study bibles on the NIV and the Brazilian JFA. The main books from the bible employed will be Samuel, Kings, Chronicles and the Psalms told to be David's. However, I do not wish, ever, to do a theological study or anything similar to that. I do seek to understand better the story and the heart of this great king. Never, though, in the academically accepted strictness that is demanded for a theological piece.

As stated by the website’s section name, this is still work in progress. I may use this article to keep track of my progress in this work, which has barely started. What I have done so far is gather all the biblical text I had found, be it from the Old Testament, or from the New Testament. All text found from all of these books was united in one single file. Now, I shall try to organize this information in the chronological order. Then, I will gradually turn it into something that is pleasant to read. Nevertheless, there is no intention of changing the story, neither adding nor removing anything. The goal is just to be able to understand it better.

Thank you for your visit. I hope I can offer you more publications soon,

Andre Soeiro
