" . . . brilliant . . . [Polzin's] splendid work deserves consideration by all serious students of 2 Samuel." —The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

The figure of David is the focus of Polzin's provocative new reading of 2 Samuel. Polzin makes a strong case for a complex yet coherent picture of the monarchy within Israelite theology as he demonstrates the literary artfulness and ideological sophistication of the Deuteronomic History.
