"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999

New York Times Book Review - Jonathan Wilson

There is no better place to reassess the character of David than in Alter's masterly new translation....It will, I hope and expect, prove as influential and popular as his 1996 version of Genesis...[He] can draw a large, serious and, one imagines, largely secular audience of readers eager to take on the Bible as literature.
