Overview

In this completely revised edition of a true classic, Walter Brueggemann examines four different sets of David texts, both narrative and poetic. Each text reflects a particular social context, a particular social vision, and a particular community. Thus these stories and poems offer distinctly different "modes of truth" concerning this pivotal biblical figure. The tribe, the family, the state, and the assembly each brought a different agenda to their portrayals of David. Each fashioned different portraits of the one who helped define them and was defined by them.
