... 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.

Book Description Indiana University Press, United States, 1993. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This reading of 2 Samuel continues the analysis of the books of Samuel begun in Samuel and the Deuteronomist. The figure of David drawn in 2 Samuel both dominates the story and provides a major challenge to readers who would view the larger narrative as unified historiography composed by sophisticated authors and editors. The fates of Saul and David in 1D2 Samuel seem to cohere only with great difficulty, and DavidOs own story appears to many to be a pastiche of earlier sources. PolzinOs provocative new reading of 2 Samuel makes a strong case for a complex yet coherent picture of the monarchy within Israelite theology. Using the insights of Mikhail Bakhtin and other modern scholars, Polzin argues that the composition of the Deuteronomic history was a major step in the development of an important genre in world literature, and that the books of Samuel are an excellent example of the genius of ancient Israelite narrative.
