No one will study the book of Psalms without coming in contact with David as a great poet. Its location at the center of the scriptures suggests its underlying importance. In the words of Samuel Taylor Coleridge a great English Romantic poet and a friend to William Wordsworth, he defined Poetry as “the best words in best order”, David’s poetic contribution to the Bible spices the scriptures in such a way that the “air nimbly recommends itself unto our gentle senses”.
This book enchants every reader to its tasteful attraction of verses and poetic structures to present an attitude to the magnificent life and times of King David – shepherd, musician, father, warrior, leader, and more. It is therefore of immense value to poetize this poet. This is why the author of “David in Epic Presentation” took time to gracefully drive David to the poetic world to which he handsomely belongs. See how the author paints a picture about David’s men as they sorrowfully moved out of Jerusalem during Absalom’s rebellion.
“If you imagine the flowing tears of David’s men
And the sorrowful throbbing like music their hearts did beat
You would then see Zambia in nature’s gain
Flowing or murmuring as great Victoria Falls can be.”
