The Story of David, THE David

Yale University Press

"For unto you is born in the city of David…"

Which David?  The one who slew Goliath, or the one who ruled as a king, or the poet with the sensitive heart? 

Same guy. 

Rabbi David Wolpe examines what we know about the biblical figure in his book David: The Divided Heart
