"After God's Own Heart is an excellent contribution to an important series on the biblical theology of the Old Testament. As Mark Boda shows in this useful and accessible book, the House of David is central to the Bible's message of salvation. Using a thematic approach that is well-informed by careful scholarship, Boda explores David's many connections to Christ and to the church as the covenant community of David's Son." - Philip Graham Ryken
"At last a series on the Old Testament designed to provide reliable exposition, biblical theology, and a focus on Christ. these books should be like manna in the desert to pastors, preachers, teachers, and many individual Christians who struggle to come to terms with how to read the Old Testament." - Sinclair B. Ferguson
