Talking the Talk A dramatic exposition of 2 Samuel 5.11 to 1 Kings 2.11 by Pete Wilcox

Talking the Talk A dramatic exposition of 2 Samuel 5.11 to 1 Kings 2.11


Talking the Talk A dramatic exposition of 2 Samuel 5.11 to 1 Kings 2.11 by Pete Wilcox

Conceived as a sequel to 'Walking the Walk' , although also capable of standing alone, this a fresh and timely reading of the second half of the David story, from the moment he becomes king of 'all Israel' to his death.


'This attractive commentary, with as many questions left open as sensitive proposals offered, is very warmly recommended.'
Graeme Auld, the Expository Times, vol 123, no 3, December 2011
