David's Successors

Full Product Description

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.

David's Successors by Garrett Galvin was published by Liturgical Press in November 2016. The ISBN for David's Successors is 9780814682517.
