2 Samuel 15-17: Absalom and David

The book of 2 Samuel turns on chapter 11, as David’s blessed reign is blighted by his adultery and murder. From now on, the sword will not leave his household. Calamity will come upon him from within his own family. Stuart Holman leads this reflection on chapters 15-17, which tell of David’s increasing distress and also of his faith– all the while giving us insights into the mind of Christ.
