The action starts to heat up in our podcast series on the life of David. This week’s episode looks at the building of David’s army, the famous elite forces unit known as David’s Mighty Men, and his many wives.

David’s mighty men are one of my favorite parts of the stories of David. For several years I taught a young men’s mentoring group, and this part of the story was always a highlight.
