Abstract:

Everett Fox's translation of the biblical books from Genesis through Deuteronomy has been widely acclaimed as a scholarly, religious, and literary masterpiece. Praising its unique and authoritative approach, the New York Times Book review said, "It makes it possible for us to take up the Scripture as if we had never seen it before." In Give us a King! Fox turns to the two books of Samuel, which contain some of the Bible's most famous stories and most unforgettable personalities: the barren Hannah, who will be mother to the prophet Samuel; the tragic King Saul; Bathsheba, the object of King David's illicit desire and the future mother of King Solomon; and King David himself, the romantic hero who becomes a legendary but morally compromised monarch. Accompanied by illuminating commentary and notes, Fox's masterful translation recreates the echoes, allusions, alliterations, and wordplays of the Hebrew original, so that the reader is fully able to experience in English the full power of the ancient saga of the original once and future king. -- from dust jacket.
