David --- Shepherd, warrior, king, and poet. A man of conflicts and contrasts. A magnificent leader and a frail mortal. All the depth and dramatic richness of King David's life permeate this classic study by F. W. Krummacher, acknowledged by many to be the greatest evangelical German preacher of the nineteenth century. Renowned history Philip Schaff has written that Krummacher was endowed with "a most fertile and brilliant imagination, a vigorous and original mind ... and a perfect familiarity with the Scriptures."
