Duration: 1 Hour

Battles for Political Power After King David: Topic of Program at the Scarsdale Library

Author Peter Feinman will discuss his recent book, "Jerusalem Throne Games: Bible Story Battles after the Death of David" at the Scarsdale Public Library on Monday, October 2, at 7:30 p.m. Registration is required at the library website, scarsdalelibrary.org.

The book explores the political battle for power to succeed David expressed through selected stories from the beginning of the Book of Genesis. In these confrontations, combatants wielded a new weapon of war that was changing the course of human history, the alphabet prose narrative. Competing factions battled for the throne through storytelling. The book analyzes six of the stories from Genesis 4–11 through the lens of the succession of Solomon and the collapse of his kingdom. These stories are identified as supplements to the existing alphabet narrative from the time of David. They were written by the various factions or priesthoods vying for power and are political in nature.
