Through David and the story of the kingship, God taught us about his governance of the world and of his people. David was only human and at times the worthy subject of both praise and severe criticism. But in his relationship with God, we find a model for the people both then and today: suppleness to God's will; wholehearted pursuit of righteousness; sincere repentance from sin; mercy for others; and true worship of God, who alone is worthy.

Dull and superficial summary of Samuel 1 and 2
Would you try another book from Michael J. Ruszala and Wyatt North and/or David Glass?
No. The author comes across as a very nice guy, but the content is at the level of a junior high Sunday School class. Perhaps written for people who won't actually read the source.
What do you think your next listen will be?
C.S. Lewis on the Psalms.
Which character – as performed by David Glass – was your favorite?
There were no characters - just a lifeless text summarizing the story of David. David Glass did a great job with a lackluster book.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment and frustration at having lost time that could have been better spent.
Any additional comments?
This book summarizes Samuel 1 and 2 and adds a brief chapter on the Psalms without offering much insight at all. If you just want the story of David as a story I would suggest Wangerin's "A Book of God", if you want to understand the Psalms there are plenty better. I have yet to find something that really connnects the two.
