Well-known and respected children's author Barbara Cohen has written a compelling biography of David, from his slaying of Goliath through his persecution by King Saul and his ascension to the throne of a newly united Israel. Recasting the biblical narrative in modern language, Ms. Cohen creates a multifaceted, colorful, and very human figure-David the soldier, politician, administrator, lover, father, poet, and religious leader. Her carefully researched account draws on today's knowledge of archaeology, history, politics, and psychology, and discusses David's continuing influence on Judeo-Christian religious beliefs and on the folklore of many peoples.
