With critical scholarship and theological sensitivity, Walter Brueggemann traces the people of God through the books of Samuel as they shift from marginalized tribalism to an oppressive monarchy. He carefully opens the literature of the books, sketching a narrative filled with historical realism but also bursting with an awareness that more than human action is being presented.

    In 2 Samuel 21, the author of this volume claims David fabricated the message from God about the cause of the famine, to justify violence against the house of Saul. He uses this as a platform to accuse David of not being the pious king he was portrayed to be in preceding chapters. This would seem to undermine both Scripture as being God's word, and the character of David. We know who the accuser of the brethren is, and who has been trying to undermine God's word since Genesis. That's evidently the inspiring source for this commentary's interpretation.
