Reading Old Testament Narrative with its Ancient Audience

by Philip Francis Esler

ISBN: 9780227679913

“Esler moves masterfully through narratives concerned with the biblical wives Tamar (Genesis 38) and Hannah (1 Samuel 1–2); the warrior sagas concerned with Saul (1 Samuel 1–2); the warrior sagas concerned with Saul (1 Samuel 8–31), David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17), David’s rise to power (1 Samuel 19–2 Samuel 5), and Judith; and tales of sex, so of David and Bathsheba (2 Samuel 10–12), and Amnon and Tamar (2 Samuel 13). […] Informative and engaging…”
