Product description

Review

'Exum is one interpreter who faces the dark side of biblical reality without flinching. With a refreshing fidelity to a tradition that struggles with the unintelligible and the contingent … Exum demonstrates a remarkable literary sensitivity that delights the reader with a well-crafted work of deep insight.' Catholic Biblical Quarterly

'Exum's analysis of the Hebrew texts is subtle and penetrating.' Theology

'The book is excellent … This is a book to read and reread and one which will make a big contribution to current literary readings of the Bible.' Biblical Interpretation

'Exum writes beautifully.' JSOT

Book Description

Using insights about ancient and modern tragedy, this much-praised study offers challenging and provocative new readings of selected biblical narratives: the stories of Saul, Jephthah and Israel's most famous king, David.
