Gillian Keys examines the “succession narrative,” a long-held literary and theological viewpoint on the life of David. She gives an in-depth introduction to the concept and its key twentieth-century thinkers. Keys then brings the different views into dialogue, along with her own theories. Giving careful attention to the key passages in 1 Kings and 2 Samuel, she presents a readable analysis of the succession narrative and David’s reign.
