Who should lead us? Who should we, as a community, look to for guidance? These questions followed the Israelite community upon their return from the Exile: Should they return with Davidic kingship or without it? Their answer was king Saul. Reading Israel's first king as a riddle or the epitome of Israel's experience with kingship, King Saul's Asking explores the characterization of the figure Saul, the question of the apparent silence of God, the multiple complexities of responsibility for kingship, and the readers' opportunities for transformation. It is not only an in-depth character study but also an interesting, insightful read, and opportunity for transformation.
