A Heart for God, Studies in the Life of King David, by Gary Olsby, 92 pages (in Haitian-Creole).
Do I have a heart for God? So often we read in the Bible or hear in a sermon, “David had a heart for God!” And as we sit there we wonder if we could ever measure up to God’s estimation of David. In our hearts we truly search for answers to all the questions we so neatly push to the back of our minds. Are people like David born the way they are? Was there something special that David had that I don’t? How can I have a heart like David’s, that is pleasing to God?
You can be “A Christian After God’s Own Heart.” We think of David going out to fight Goliath, full of faith ready to face the evil giant come what may. To many he is the hero of heroes in the Old Testament. But we forget that David did not come into his own overnight. His spiritual development took time and work. The process was never finished. He struggled with everything from his leadership ability to his lust after the flesh. But the encouraging thing about David’s life is as Gary Olsby states, “David was just a normal guy like you and me who truly gave his heart to God.” And that is the difference. God does extraordinary things with normal people whose hearts belong to him! Gary’s book will show us how God never gave up on David and how God never has given up on you! You will see the great love David had for God and how we can develop that love too. This book will open the historical accounts of David up to you in unimaginable ways and in the process give you a richer fellowship with God.
