First-time author, Pamela Snyder, wrote the book, A King for all Time: David—A Comprehensive Study, as the guide for her Bible study group. Ms. Snyder’s goal was to simplify the biblical record, so that the average reader could fully understand and appreciate the subject matter. The book is the result of extensive research that treats the entirety of King David’s life with the respect it deserves. The finished product is a documentary that begins with David’s childhood and proceeds through the stages of his life, as recorded in the Old Testament books of 1 and 2 Samuel and Psalms.
Be prepared to experience spiritual growth and God’s blessings as you read and study the chronicle of David. This collection of real life experiences, detailed with historical facts, and practical lessons illuminates and encourages the reader. Clearly, David’s life closely resembles our lives! Some common themes of the book:
• Complex family dynamics
• War strategy and survival
• Struggle for power and position
• God’s plan and intervention
David’s reality was that affliction and despair would always exist. Yet his relationship with God sustained him with direction and joy. He found that God was always present, always interested, and always loving.
