DAVID: RISE – Released Today





I fell in
love with David’s story, if not always with the man himself, when I first read
the Bible at age 21. Since then, I have gone back to his story many times to
find my bearings, to figure out both how to live and how not to live, to the

David by Mark Buchanan
"Wow!
What a delightful complement to coffee and self-isolation.

“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”
Mark Buchanan, The Holy Wild: Trusting in the Character of God

“Sometimes doubting is not a lack of faith, but an expression of it. Sometimes to doubt is to merely insist that God be taken seriously not frivolously, to insist that our faith is placed in and upheld by something other than seeming conjuring tricks.”
Mark Buchanan, Your God Is Too Safe

“Unless and until we rest in God, we will never risk for God.”
Mark Buchanan, The Holy Wild: Trusting in the Character of God
