Item description for With Skilful Hand: The Story Of King David (Mcgill-Queen's Studies in the History of Religion) by David T. Barnard...

In this imaginative reinterpretation of the story of King David, one of the most complex characters of ancient Scripture is brought to life. "While remaining faithful to biblical and scholarly resources, Barnard brings alive the conflicted personal and cultural matrix of David's life and reign in a compelling manner."--Catherine Harland, Queen's University.

Publishers Description
Zadok has always served God. A scribe, codifier, keeper of records in the storerooms of the temple precincts where the tithes, offerings, and temple articles are kept, among his most cherished documents are a bundle of letters, personal journal entries, and fragments of formal records, over six hundred years old and absent from the official record, that belonged to King David. In old age, widowed and alone, and with diminished responsibilities at the temple, he turns to these documents, arranging them chronologically to paint an intimate portrait of Israel's most revered king. In doing so Zadok gains a fuller understanding of this complicated and compelling man - a man who walked with God - and through him an assurance that his own choice to serve God has been worthwhile.

Reviews - What do customers think about With Skilful Hand: The Story Of King David (Mcgill-Queen's Studies in the History of Religion)?

Fascinating reading from cover to cover  Dec 13, 2005
The latest addition to the outstanding "McGill-Queen's Studies in the History of Religion" series, With Skilful Hand: The Story Of King David by David T. Barnard (President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Regina) brings to life the ancient scriptural tale of King David. Structured in the format of an imaginary series of letters from Biblical characters, With Skilful Hand adheres firmly to the content and meaning of the scriptures, carefully avoiding the temptation to embellish with unrecorded details, while creating a highly readable and smoothly flowing rendition that lay people can follow and enjoy as much as scholars. King David's own character manifested in such diverse roles as commander, father, murderer, poet, and "a man after God's own heart" in scripture; it is these at times paradoxically conflicting roles that make his story fascinating reading from cover to cover. Appendices allow for quick reference of names of people, names of places, the source passages, and offer a guide to further reading. Highly recommended.
