David's Successors : Kingship in the Old Testament Paperback / softback


David's Successors: Kingship in the Old Testament argues for a new reading of kingship in the Old Testament.

Rather than presenting the kings as monsters-with the occasional angelic ruler-this study seeks a more nuanced version of kingship.

This book considers the original concept and context of kingship before concentrating on five kings in particular: Jeroboam, Ahab, Hezekiah, Manasseh, and Josiah.

Much contemporary scholarship is concerned with the reconceptualization and recontextualization of kingship that hearkens from a negative perspective on kingship, but this book will fully consider the positive and original vision of kingship.

This book is ultimately rooted in a hopeful and joyful view of humanity as found in the Psalms, Sirach, and the Chronicles.
