F.B. Meyer penned biographies of the most famous Biblical figures, including Israel's greatest king, David. In David: Shepherd, Psalmist, King Meyer puts his mighty prose to work, capturing the very spirit and life of this "man after God's own heart." Concentrating on the years that transformed David from a lowly shepherd to the greatest king of Israel, Meyer does not neglect David's earliest years, kingly reign, great sin with Bathsheba and lasting legacy. Practical applications abound in Meyer's writings, and this eBook illuminates these applications through the life of David. "To bear with unfailing meekness the spiteful attacks of malice and envy; not to be overcome by evil, but to overcome evil with good; to suffer wrong...this is only possible to those in whose breasts the dove-like Spirit has found an abiding-place...and these are they who bear themselves as heroes in the fight."

One of the greatly loved preachers of his day, Frederick Brotherton Meyer was a pastor, author, Bible teacher and evangelist. He was born in London in 1847 and grew up in a Christian home. In 1895 he went to Christ Church in London, with only 100 attending. Within two years he was preaching regularly to over 2,000. He remained there for fifteen years and then began a ministry of conference preaching and evangelism, traveling to South Africa and the Far East on mission endeavors. He returned to England to pastor for several years before he died in 1929.
