Borgman, Paul
David, Saul and God: Rediscovering an Ancient Story
The biblical story of King David and his conflict with King Saul (1 and 2 Samuel) is one of the most colourful and perennially popular in the Hebrew Bible. In recent years this story has attracted a great deal of scholarly attention, much of it devoted to showing that David was a far less heroic character than appears on the surface. Indeed, more than one has painted David as a despicable tyrant. Paul Borgman provides a counter-reading to these studies, through an attentive reading of the narrative patterns of the text. He focuses on one of the key features of ancient Hebrew narrative poetics -- repeated patterns -- taking special note of even the small variations each time a pattern recurs. He argues that such 'hearing cues' would have alerted an ancient audience to the answers to such questions as 'Who is David?' and 'What is so wrong with Saul?' The narrative insists on such questions, says Borgman, slowly disclosing answers through patterns of repeated scenarios and dominant motifs that yield, finally, the supreme work of storytelling in ancient literature.Borgman concludes with a comparison with Homer's storytelling technique, demonstrating that the David story is indeed a masterpiece and David (as Baruch Halpern has said) 'the first truly modern human.

Brooks, S. S.
Saul and the Monarchy: A New Look
The negative biblical presentation of King Saul of Israel has been biased in favour of David at the expense of Saul. This book presents a more positive picture and more realistic view of the culture of the period extending from Saul to the schism. Simcha Shalom Brooks explores a number of controversial issues such as the historicity of the biblical text on which so many modern scholars are sharply divided: that David was ambitious and coveted Saul's throne, and even though David became king, the people continued to support the house of Saul. This book makes a valuable contribution to the current biblical debate as to the existence of ancient Israel in the Iron Age 1 Period. Simcha Shalom Brooks draws on literary, historical and archaeological material to present a balanced view of the period.

Harding, J.E.
The Love of David and Jonathan. Ideology, Text, Reception
Were David and Jonathan "gay" lovers?

This very modern question is at the root of the recent explosion of studies of the David and Jonathan narratives. Beneath the plurality of interpretations lies the ambiguous text of 1 and 2 Samuel, a text which has drawn its readers - from the Hebrew redactors and the translators of the Septuagint and Targum to queer theorists and historians today - to the task of resolving its several possible meanings. Generations of readers have studied the biblical narrative framed by a range of differing theories and assumptions, but today's scholarly battle over David and Jonathan has been fought from three fronts: scripture, historical criticism, and queer theory and politics. The book argues that the power and ambiguity of the text has been determined by both the richness of the biblical story as a work of narrative art and the influence of reception history on critical agendas.

Leuchter, Mark
Samuel and the Shaping of Tradition
Samuel stands out in many important biblical texts as the figure who facilitated ancient Israel's transition from a tribal league to a monarchic state. On the surface of the text, this transition appears clear and linear, as does Samuel's role in bringing Israel together as a nation and selecting its first kings. Beneath this surface, however, is a far more complicated network of memories, sources and agendas, each presenting a very different picture of Samuel and his social, religious and ideological function. In some sources, Samuel serves as a symbol of Israel's developing priesthood and its system of social ethics, demonstrating the tensions within the priestly ranks. In others, Samuel's prophetic status is utilized to periodize Israel's history into distinct categories, positioning prophets over monarchs as national authorities. Elsewhere, Samuel is recruited to qualify - and disqualify - different forms of political organization in pre-monarchic Israel and systems of social hierarchy. Finally, the Jewish and Christian exegetical traditions return to the figure of Samuel and mine the texts in which he appears to re-structure Israel's national identity and the later communities that claimed descent from it. Mark Leuchter explores how the Samuel of these sources differs from the Samuel of the final form of the text, how the different writers used him to shape their ideas and transmit their messages, and how Samuel functions as a vehicle for the creation of a more elaborate literary superstructure drawn from discreet sources.

Magennis, Feidhlimidh T.
First and Second Samuel
First and Second Samuel tell the story of the beginnings of monarchy in ancient Israel. These two powerful narratives present many great figures of biblical history - Samuel, Saul, and David - and explore the complex interaction of historical developments and human fidelity under God.

In the books of Samuel, characters interact to influence and persuade, to express motivation and desire, and to shape the reader's understanding of the issues that faced the Israelites as they responded to God's invitation to covenant. Through the medium of story, the reader shares in the perennial struggle to discover, in the midst of personal and political conflict, God's ways for humanity.

Short, J. R.
The Surprising Election and Confirmation of King David
Some of the best-known biblical episodes are found in the story of David's rise to kingship in "First and Second Samuel". Why was this series of stories included in the Bible? An answer that has become increasingly popular is that this narrative should be interpreted as the 'apology of David', that is, the personal justification of King David against charges that he illegitimately usurped Saul's throne. Comparisons between 'The History of David's Rise' and the Hittite 'Apology of Hattusili', in particular, appear to support this view that the biblical account belongs to the genre of ancient Near Eastern royal apology. Having presented this approach, Randall Short argues that the biblical account has less in common with the Hittite apology than scholars have asserted, and he demonstrates how interpretive assumptions about the historical reality behind the text inform the meaning that these scholars discern in the text. His central contention is that this story should not be interpreted as the personal exoneration of David composed to win over suspicious readers. Rather, composed for faithful readers represented by David, the story depicts the dramatic confirmation of David's surprising election through his gradual emergence as the beloved son of Jesse, Saul, all Israel, and YHWH Himself.

Tsumura, David Toshio
The Book of 1 Samuel
"David and Goliath", "The Call of Samuel", "The Witch of Endor", "David and Bathsheba" - such stories are among the most famous from the entire ancient world. Though these stories are memorable and easy to follow, however, the books of "1 and 2 Samuel", where they are recorded, are among the most difficult ones in the Hebrew Bible. The Hebrew text is widely considered corrupt and sometimes even unintelligible. The social and religious customs are strange and seemingly divergent from the tradition of Moses. In this first volume of an ambitious two-volume commentary on the books of Samuel, David Tsumura sheds light on the background of "1 Samuel" by looking carefully at the Philistine and Canaanite cultures, and he untangles the difficult Hebrew text. Tsumura also discusses such fundamental matters as the date, literary structure, and purpose of "1 Samuel" - to show that obedience to the word of God is the necessary condition for a king to be acceptable to the God of Israel.
