    The Secret Chord Reading The Secret Chord A Novel by Geraldine Brooks was like reading about the biblical character King David for the first time. Author Ms. Brooks brought King David’s character to life. As I read, I hardly realized that the novel is over five-hundred pages. Brooks carefully built upon the biblical story of David. What I appreciate is that Brooks did not omit information rather she expanded on the facts colorfully and creatively. Some of the expansion is based on theory. However

    "Send me Uriah the Hittite." So Joab sent Uriah to David. 7 When Uriah came to him, David asked concerning the welfare of Joab and the people and the state of the war. 8 Then David said to Uriah, "Go down to your house, and wash your feet."

    Perhaps surprisingly, Uriah clings to the standard practice of not engaging in carnal relations with his wife, insisting on maintaining his ritual purity for battle. We do not see anything in the Mosaic law that specifically requires this behavior from “Uriah the Hittite,” and, indeed, we have no concrete evidence that Uriah is Jewish. True, he is one of David’s elite troops, and he fights for Yahweh, but the Hittites were a heathen people, and we are left with an unsolved

    it clear that when the Israelites commit iniquity, he will punish them. Their sin warrants God’s discipline, but throughout the book God punishes certain sins more harshly than others. Sins that are against another person, such as David murdering Uriah, have milder consequences than sins that involve the failure to do something, such as Saul’s failure to pray during his reign. I will argue that omissive sins are more offensive to the Lord than interpersonal sins because they challenge God’s sovereignty

    iniquity, he will punish them (2 Samuel 7:14). Their sin warrants God’s discipline, but as we see throughout the book of Samuel, God punishes certain types of sins more harshly than others. Sins that are against another person, such as David murdering Uriah, have milder consequences than sins that involve lacking to do something, such as Saul’s deficiency of prayer during his reign. I will argue that omissive sins are more offensive to the Lord than interpersonal sins as determined by the severity of

    As we examine the heroes of the faith outlined for us in the Old Testament, we would be hard pressed to find a more faithful man that King David. After the death of King Saul, David became the King of the Hebrew people. David, who was meek and pious, steadfastly believed in the true God and tried to do His will. He had endured much persecution from Saul and other enemies but did not become bitter, did not lift his hand against Saul, as he was the Lord’s anointed, but placed all his hope in God, and
