Reviews

"This is an excellent study of the most fascinating character in the Old Testament."-Wall Street Journal
"How can a man who murders his lover's husband in order to cover up an adulterous affair be fit to be king? . . . Wolpe gently and gracefully explores the many facets-king, sinner, father, lover, and husband, among others-that together create David's outsized personality . . . In the end, the author observes, contemporary readers identify with David so well because he is full of contradictions, and he is great because of this complexity, not in spite of it."-Publishers Weekly
Finalist for the 2014 National Jewish Book Awards sponsored by the Jewish Book Council in the Biography, Autobiography and Memoir category
"A sensitive and utterly unsparing reading of the most attractive and least edifying character in the Hebrew Bible."-Jack Miles
