    Telling Queen Michal's story an experiment in comparative interpretation by David J. A Clines( file )
    3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 850 libraries worldwide
    This book, an anthology of previously published writing about Michal together with some new and original essays, is something of an experiment. Its purpose is to provide reders with raw materials for developing their own reading of the Michal story. It does not offer a unified portrait of this biblical character, but rather invites readers to form their own assessment interactively with these readings of the Michal story. At the same time, this book presents some systematic guidance for coping with these divergent interpretations of the complex and tantalizing figure of Michal
    A woman's place is in the house royal women of Judah and their involvement in the House of David by Elna K Solvang( Computer File )
    2 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 581 libraries worldwide
    Archaeological discoveries have increasingly brought to light evidence of women's involvement in the royal houses of the ancient Near East, yet such evidence has not fundamentally altered the perception of monarchy as an exclusively male-gendered theological, political, and social institution. Solvang's study assembles the evidence in search of an integrated view of royal women's position and power in critical functions of monarchy, challenging customary assumptions about women's place in the royal harem. The historical information serves as a backdrop for a literary reading of biblical texts

Although they are married as teenagers, David abandons Michal only to remarry her 10 years later after ascending the throne as King. David is a greedy and ambitious man, but Michal refuses to compromise her soul and thrives in her own ways under his rule
    Michal's moral dilemma : a literary, anthropological, and ethical interpretation by Jonathan Y Rowe( Book )
    3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 144 libraries worldwide
    Michals Moral Dilemma proposes that attention should be paid to the moral goods that feature in the text, before arguing that the family, a central feature of Old Testament morality, should be understood as a set of practices rather than an institution. Jonathan Rowe discusses the use of models of social action to comprehend the social world of the Bible, and suggests a modified version of Bakhtins theory of heteroglossic voices can help readers appreciate how authors present a moral vision by approving some characters actions whilst undermining others. The discussion of Michals moral dilemma
