Maclaren's study digs into the life, character, and spiritual journey of King David, ancient Israel's beloved and complex ruler. Maclaren's writing is distinguished by a genuine regard for the biblical story and a rigorous attention to detail. He takes readers on a riveting trip through David's life, from his humble beginnings as a shepherd to his rise as a warrior, poet, and, eventually, the acclaimed king of Israel. Maclaren presents profound spiritual and moral insights throughout the book, pulling lessons from David's accomplishments and disappointments.

About Author

Alexander Maclaren

Alexander Maclaren was a Scottish Baptist clergyman who died on May 5, 1910. Maclaren was born in Glasgow, Scotland, the son of a merchant and Baptist lay preacher named David Maclaren. From 1837 to 1841, his father left his family in Edinburgh to serve as resident manager of the South Australian Company in Australia. Maclaren was converted and publicly baptized into the fellowship of the Hope St. Baptist Church, Glasgow, somewhere between the ages of 11 and 13. He attended Glasgow High School and Glasgow University before his family relocated to London when his father returned from Australia. Maclaren enrolled at Stepney College, a Baptist college in London, at the age of 16 in 1842. Dr. David Davies, an accomplished Hebrew scholar, affected him greatly, and he became a passionate student of Hebrew and Greek, among other disciplines. He completed his bachelor's degree at the University of London before the age of 20, appearing for arts degree examinations and receiving awards in Hebrew and Greek. Aside from his academic studies, he read extensively in literature, with a particular fondness for English poets. He began his ministry at Portland Chapel in Southampton the following year.
