Larry Buxton has written an engaging study/devotional book based on the biblical story of David that ought to be on everyone’s list for group study or personal use.  Using the lens of the classical theological virtues, he focuses on David as a model for leadership in church and society that allows us to learn from David’s admirable qualities and glaring failures as the ‘man after God’s own heart.’

The 30 day journey is well worth taking with Buxton as a learned guide through the rich material of David’s life, and reflections on the virtues needed for effective leadership in our time.
