Steussy (biblical interpretation, Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis) examines in close detail the three major portraits of the man, and surveys his scattered appearances in other parts of the Hebrew canon. She finds in Samuel a description of him as a virtuous hero, but also some problematic features of the plot and phrasing. In Chronicles she finds his role as the head of a people more prominent than his individual strengths and weaknesses. David of the Psalms she finds more complex, both a model for individual spiritual development and a symbol and representative for Israel. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
