Editor reviews

The second scroll - not book! - of Samuel tells David's complex story, from his rise as king, to his fall, and finally to his path towards God's forgiveness. Listening to Dr. Bill Creasy's sermons is more than educational; it is exciting! With theatrical pacing and humor, Dr. Creasy lures his audience right into the heart of each story. Meanwhile, he imparts great nuggets of wisdom. Clearly, he's honed his oratory skills during many years as a professor at UCLA. Following these lectures is like taking medicine that tastes good: a perfect combination.

Summary

The story of David continues in 2 Samuel. With the death of Saul and his three sons at Mt. Gilboa, the door opens for David to become king. But David has, in fact, no legitimate claim to the kingship; indeed, he has been working for a decade as a mercenary for Israel’s Philistine enemies. Listen as Dr. Bill Creasy follows David from the triumph of his kingship to his colossal fall and ultimate reconciliation with God. Join Logos Bible Study in exploring one of the most compelling stories in all of world literature: King David, a man after God’s own heart.

Another chapter in the linear narrative of the Bible Story

Dr Creasy presents the complicated and segmented history of the Bible Story in what he calls “a linear narrative”. The result is a compelling series of Bible stories brought to life in your mind’s eye, with his unique application of many personal stories and by pointing out little known details from scripture that solidify and support the narrative he presents. For me, it’s a biblical ‘Show and Tell’ experience that has become my personal connection to the Lord God Almighty.

Great Bible Study!

I'm working my way through all of the Logos Bible studies. I love how Dr. Creasy teaches the books if the Bible, particularly the history and linguistics. His non-Biblical anecdotes are fun too.

Fascinating tale of King David's Reign

Dr. Creasy does a great job reading this book. I enjoy how he sows in other parts of the bible to reinforce his points. He is not afraid of addressing inconsistencies and provides logical explanations.

Bill Creasy

He is the Master Teacher! Bill Creasy’s knowledge of the Bible is at the highest level. His speaking, presentation of the material and humor make it fun to learn and grow in your understanding of the Bible. I’m going through the whole Bible with Bill. When I’m done, I plan on going back and doing it again! Its been a joy and I continue to move from one book to the next with enthusiasm. I would recommend you try one, start with Genesis, then decide if you want to continue. Best, Bill A.

Wonderful lecture series!

This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
