Elie Wiesel is a Holocaust survivor, professor at Boston University, and a Nobel Laureate who's written over 40 books. He brings his unique talents and understanding of the world to this series based on important stories found in the Old Testament of the Bible. This particular volume examines the life of King David and what can be learned from his many teachings and activities. Though David was flawed like most other human beings, many believe that he became Israel's greatest king. Wiesel examines why God showed so much mercy to David, even though he committed adultery and arranged to have Bathsheba's husband murdered. This six-part series features artwork from 50 of the world's most impressive museums.
