SNEAK PEAK #6: "David: Man of Prayer, Man of War," by Walter Chantry

ANOTHER NEW RELEASE FROM BANNER OF TRUTH
To be Released the End of July '07

This wraps up our "Sneak Peaks" for the new Banner titles coming out in July, but my schedule still shows about three more expected in August. I will do some checking on those and begin "sneak peaking" them shortly. In the meantime, check back on Friday for something I think you might want. The good news is ... it's free! In the meantime, here's "Sneak Peak #6," a new title from Walter Chantry!

David: Man of Prayer, Man of War
by Walter Chantry
ISBN 13 #978-0-85151-9531 \ 304 pages
Clothbound \ $18.00

Inside Jacket Description:
Only the supreme providence of God and the unfathomable depths of divine grace could have conceived and forged the life of David. God made the son of Jesse into the emblem of the kingly office which only Christ would fulfil more gloriously. He embodied all the qualities of manly nobility and charm. Everyone in his day loved David, except the most ugly and despicable figures.
No matter how high David rose above other men, his spirit was childlike toward the Lord. He who was equally at home holding the shepherd’s staff, the warrior’s sword, the poet’s harp, and the ruler’s sceptre, was completely transparent in the humbling of himself before the God of all the earth. This ease and simplicity in worship draws out our deepest emotions as we read the life of David, King of Israel. We love this man for showing us how to pray from every point of life’s compass. We love him for showing us how, in the midst of spiritual failure, we too can draw near to the Lord again in trust and devotion.
Perfectionists will not be comfortable with David. Those who stumble often, but who always turn with melted hearts to God for pardon and help, will find in him a brother for all situations. Such people will love the sacred history of his life and find it totally engrossing.

THE AUTHOR:
Walter J. Chantry was born in 1938, graduated from Dickenson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania (1960), and Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia (1963). In the same year, he was ordained to the gospel ministry and became pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where he served for 39 years.
The chapters of this book originally appeared as articles in The Banner of Truth, the monthly magazine of the Banner of Truth Trust, which Walter Chantry has edited since December 2002.

So, what does it tell you that I first heard about this book when you posted this on your blog? The man just does not market his books!

Steve Burlew said...

Well, Tom ... I guess it tells me two things: (1)you better keep reading the blog, and (2) if you want a copy of the book, since he probably won't have any, you better come to me! Maybe I can even get him to sign it for you! Good to "meet" you, Tom.

Tom,
You related to Walter?

I have already tried to sell Tom a copy of his Father's own book. Since it was on our church booktable, I didn't attempt to mark-up the price for Tom, but I think he would have been too smart for that anyway:-)
