After God's Own Heart: The Gospel According to David (Gospel According to the Old Testament)
Boda, Mark J.
“One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.”- D. A. CarsonSee All

“With this book, Mark Boda has given the church a priceless treasure. Beginning with Abraham, he takes us on a journey through a succession of familiar biblical narratives to show us the essentials of spiritual leadership and what it means to think, breathe, and live in a manner reflecting God’s own heart. His effective use of literary and background materials causes these stories to take on new and profound significance as he consistently directs our attention to their ultimate reference point—to the anointed One, our Messiah and King, Jesus Christ, and to our privileged position as his anointed community.”- Steven C.

“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.”See All
