The majority of this book looks at David, his life, the kingdom he built, and his relationship with the temple. It was David’s desire to build an elaborate stone temple dedicated to God. Was that what God really wanted? Of course there were a few changes between the Tabernacle Moses built, and the stone temple David planned for, and Solomon built. What were those changes, how did they come about, why did God allow them, and what effect did they have on the nation of Israel? I shouldn’t have to say this, but the answers are all in scripture. We don’t have to jump out of the Bible into history books, online videos, or any other sources. That is the beauty of the Bible, and one of the things this book does. If nothing else, this book looks back over previous stories in scripture showing how God knew what was going to happen long before it happened. When we take a serious look at scripture, we find where God warned about mistakes people made long before they thought about making them.
