Product Description

Recent books examining the events recounted in 2 Samuel, particularly the life of King David, have tended toward the sensational. This new study of 2 Samuel finds the text lurid enough without overindulging readers' imaginations. Using new advances in form criticism, Antony Campbell shows what can and cannot be learned from this important Old Testament document. This commentary explores the wealth of insight found in 2 Samuel by paying close attention to the literary structure of the book. A comprehensive introduction answers questions concerning 2 Samuel's setting, genre, audience, and development. The commentary proper carefully analyzes 2 Samuel's major sections and each passage within them. In the process, Campbell reveals the diversity of views that existed in Israel's traditions, and he highlights the prominence of theology over history in Israel's thinking.

Publisher's Description

The Forms of the Old Testament Literature series (FOTL) aims to present, according to a standard outline and methodology, a form-critical analysis of every book and each unit in the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible). Fundamentally exegetical, the FOTL volumes examine the "structure, genre, setting," and "intention" of the biblical literature in question. Designed to be used alongside a Hebrew text or a translation of the Bible, the series is meant primarily to lead the student to the Old Testament texts themselves, not just to form-critical studies of the texts. Each volume includes thorough bibliographies and a glossary of the genres and formulas identified in the commentary.
