Wiersbe's "Be" Series on the Old Testament—Practical, devotional, and concise describes the "Be" series. Each of these mini-commentaries contains a wealth of practical insight into God's Word. This resource covers the entire book of 1 Samuel.
The secret of my success is that at an early age I discovered I was not God.
So replied Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. to a young reporter's question on the occasion of the renowned Supreme Court Justice's ninetieth birthday (1931). His quip evokes more theological truth than even he might have intended; for true success in this world is rooted first in the premise that God is in control … and I am not.
Wiersbe's study of 1 Samuel examines what truly made David a great success—being a follower "after [God's] own heart." (1 Sam. 13:14).
The amazing narrative of 1 Samuel powerfully presents to us the contrast between King Saul's tragic fall and David's life of victory. You will see how true success is defined by character, forged-even in the fires of failure—by a sincere, obedient, and abiding faith in the One True God. And as you follow this story of one man's rise to greatness, you will find yourself grappling with the same tough question: "How do I define greatness?"
