David: the divided heart

David: the divided heart
David Wolpe, whom Newsweek called 'the most influential rabbi in America,' takes a fresh look at biblical David in an attempt to find coherence in his seemingly contradictory actions and impulses. He questions why David holds such an exalted place in history and legend, and explores his complex character, drawing on the book of Samuel, in the Old Testament, and later literature.

Of all the figures in the Bible, David arguably stands out as the most perplexing and enigmatic. He was many things: a warrior who subdued Goliath and the Philistines; a king who united a nation; a poet who created beautiful, sensitive verse; a loyal servant of God who proposed the great Temple and founded the Messianic line; a schemer, deceiver, and adulterer who freely indulged his very human appetites. Wolpe's study leads to a fascinating portrait of an exceptional human being who, despite his many flaws, was truly beloved by God.
