Volume 1, King David (II Samuel 9-20 & I Kings 1-2)

A detailed and integral interpretation of the King David story which contains 32 scenes, divided into 4 acts (2 Samuel 9-12, 13-14, 15-20 and 1 Kings 1-2). The Hebrew text is thoroughly examined and reinterpreted scene by scene in a study of language, style, and structure.

Volume 2, The Crossing Fates (1 Samuel 13-31 and 2 Samuel 1)

The Hebrew text of 1 Sam. 13-2 Sam. 1 is the long section which inextricably interweaves the demise of King Saul and the rise of David into a subtle and complicated dialectic of election and rejection. The study presents a complete description of the textures. The author's model of the "semiotic scale" enables him to chart the different levels of the textual hierarchy and exactly determine the weight and range of action of each formal fact within the whole.
