David: Great Leader or Damaged Hero?

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/david_great_leader_or_damaged_hero_20050923

"The Life of David" by Robert Pinsky (Schocken Books, $19.95). Every morning, pious Jews pray to God that "the offspring of Your servant David may speedily flourish ... for we hope for your salvation all day long." The hope of future redemption and a return to ancient glory has long been a staple of Jewish life, based upon God's promise to David that "your house and your kingship shall ever be secure before you; your throne shall be established forever."
