With Skillful Hands and Integrity of Heart - Leadership Lessons From David from Regent Audio on Vimeo.

Poet. Warrior. Shepherd. Assassin. Worshipper. Adulterer. David was a man after God's own heart, but also utterly human and deeply flawed - wise, courageous, compassionate, but also prone to anger, pride, lust, fear, self-pity, and more. He's not so much a model as a mirror. Though much about him inspires us, not everything invites our admiration or imitation. But everything - his character, his prayers, his relationships, his decisions, his actions, his mistakes - demands our full attention and prayerful reflection.


In this course, we will enter deeply into the David story, not to find leadership principles but to reflect on the life of a real man and leader in real time, with all its tensions, contradictions, serendipities, and opportunities. And always, we will be looking at David's relationship with God. We'll eschew formulaic answers but will mine the story for real wisdom for our own journey as leaders. Lectures include:

  • The David Story: Overview
  • The Time of The Judges & The Rise of Samuel, Saul & David
  • David in Saul's Court
  • David in the Wilderness
  • David & Power
