: Continuing the epic story of David, this second volume encompasses his life from age thirty to his death at seventy. In this volume, King David must wait seven years to don the crown of all Israel. He attempts to move the Ark of the Covenant to the new capital of Israel, the City of David, Jerusalem, but disaster strikes. Readers will meet David's Mighty Men and see just how fearless they were. Readers will also learn the story of Bathsheba, who convinces David to choose Solomon as his successor. And while David was not allowed to build the Temple that would house the Ark of the Covenant, he made all the preparations so that a young Solomon could. It's a fascinating, truly epic story of poverty to power, and has more twists and turns, good and bad, triumph and tragedy, than the story of any man or woman who ever lived.
