About the Book

The artist Michelangelo immortalized the image of David, using everyday tools to depict this man after God’s own heart. Yet while Michelangelo’s David offers us a full view of David the man, the scriptures offer us a full image of his heart and soul. So can David match the image depicted by Michelangelo? Can David match our own image of him? And can David match the heart of God?

In David and Michelangelo: Heart and Stone, authors Dr. Stephen Harrison and Richard Huizinga seek to identify the traits that justify the “heart of God” as an early descriptor of David. By exploring the life and trials of David-his successes as well as his failures-we can get a complete picture of this man after God’s own heart, learning in the process how we too can always seek God despite our imperfections.

The heart after God’s own is that portion of ourselves that remains attracted to God despite our flaws. By exploring the enduring image and character of David, we can begin to chip away at the image we had in order to find that heart of David that is man after God’s own heart.
