Researching Life Stories critically and pragmatically reflects upon the use of life stories in social and educational research. Using four life stories as examples, the authors apply four different, practical approaches to demonstrate effective research and analysis. As well as examining in detail the four life stories around which the book is written, areas covered include: * Method and methodology in life story research * Analysis * Reflections on analyses * Craft and ethics in researching life * Policy, practice and theory in life story research. Throughout the book the authors demystify the issues surrounding life story research and demonstrate the significance of this approach to understanding individual and social worlds. This unique approach to life story research will be a valuable resource for all social science and education researchers at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999 Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays.

One of the most important and complex characters in the Bible, King David has been the subject of innumerable portraits, both artistic and literary. Michaelangelo's magnificent sculpture of him is perhaps the single best known work of art in the world, and the story of the humble shepherd who slew Goliath and became king has assumed a powerful mythological status. But was David a real person--and if so what kind of person was he? Through a close and critical reading of biblical texts, ancient history, and recent archeological discoveries, Steven L. McKenzie concludes that David was indeed a real person. This David, however, was no hero but a usurper, adulterer, and murderer--a Middle Eastern despot of a familiar type. McKenzie shows that the story of humble beginnings is utterly misleading: "shepherd" is a metaphor for "king," and David came from a wealthy, upper-class background. Similarly, McKenzie reveals how David's ascent to power, traditionally attributed to popularity and divine blessing, in fact resulted from a campaign of terror and assassination. While instituting a full-blown Middle Eastern monarchy, David was an aggressive leader, a devious politician, and a ruthless war chief. Throughout his scandalous reign, important figures who stood in his way died at convenient times, under questionable circumstances. Even his own sons were not spared. David's story, writes McKenzie, "reads like a modern soap opera, with plenty of sex, violence, and struggles for power." Carefully researched and vividly written, King David: An Unauthorized Biography offers a provocative reappraisal of the life of one of the Bible's most compelling figures.

Wenn David auf Goliath trifft, hat er zwei Möglichkeiten: Spielt er nach dessen Regeln, wird er verlieren. Ist er bereit, die Regeln der Macht zu brechen, zwingt er den Riesen damit in die Knie. Malcolm Gladwell ist davon überzeugt: Underdogs sind Gewinner! In genialen Episoden von listigen Kriegsherren, halbstarken Basketballteams und inspirierten Softwareentwicklern zeigt der Kultautor, dass Triumph keine Frage der Größe, sondern der inneren Haltung ist. Gladwells hintersinniges Plädoyer für das Große im Kleinen ist zugleich ein Appell zum kreativen Ungehorsam. Nach der Lektüre dieses verblüffenden Buchs ist kein Riese mehr vor Ihnen sicher.

The words in the title, You Are the Man, convicted a deeply guilty King David of the heinous crimes he had committed against Uriah the Hittite, Bathsheba's husband. Yet, in many remarkable ways, David was God's man, chosen and blessed for greatness. This book tells a story of David's life from the Bible read as literally true. The flowing, easy-to-read narrative observes him progress from shepherd to king to his death. Walking with David through tragedy and triumph makes it easier to see the actual person behind this larger-than-life Bible character. "A fresh approach to the life of David." Pastor Tim Murdoch While David's sins and difficulties are not ignored, King David: You Are the Man! highlights several positive events, including some lesser-known ones found only I Chronicles. King David was the man whom God chose to be ancient Israel's second king, who established daily praise and worship of God in Israel, to whom God revealed eternal purposes for His Son and His kingdom, who led Israel to an exalted place among the nations, to whom God revealed the details of the temple Solomon would build, and who organized the priests and Levites in their ministries of worship at that temple. "I feel as if I am getting to know David, and more than that, his faith. As a woman of faith, it sings to my heart .... I feel as if I am getting to know God better too!" Halin I Soaring Included in this narration of David's life are a history of the Ark of the Covenant, a possible timeline of David's life, a probe into the disastrous census that David ordered to be taken, (When considering the difficult questions posed by II Samuel 24:1 and I Chronicles 21:1, Pastor Mike Green expressed this credible idea: "I think God was angry with Israel because the tabernacle was in Gibeon.") a history of the Levites and their development as God's special servants, and several specific life disciplines that made David a man after God's own heart."

Biblical tradition portrays King David as an exceptional man and a paragon of godly devotion. But was he? Some scholars deny that he existed at all. Did he? This challenging book critically examines the textual and archaeological evidence in an effort to paint an accurate picture of one of the Bible's central figures. A leading scholar of biblical history and the ancient Near East, Baruch Halpern traces the development of the David tradition, showing how the image of David grew over time. According to Halpern, David was the founder of a dynasty that progressively exaggerated his accomplishments. Halpern's clear portrait of the historical David reveals his true humanity and shows him to be above all a politician who operated in a rough-and-tumble environment in which competitors were ready literally to slit throats.

Author Amilya Antonetti's son, David, spent almost half of the first year of his life in and out of the emergency room. After the doctor's efforts to pinpoint the cause of his distress were fruitless, a determined Amilya eventually discovered an unmistakable pattern: Her son became violently ill about two hours after she finished cleaning house. David was having severe, though not uncommon, allergic reactions to ordinary household cleaners. Amilya's attention immediately turned to finding safer yet still effective ways to keep a clean house -- without putting David in the hospital -- which she built into a successful line of natural products.

This story is true, with very minimal alterations. Some of the names have been changed for lack of permissive authority. Any names not changed by the author are either deceased or a party to the motivating factor of this writing. For many ill-spent years we’ve contemplated on gathering enough information along with the discipline necessary to put together the proper words and feelings into action. The following pages are not meant for the sole purpose of complacency. However, we do hope it will be both helpful and pleasurable for reading. The story has a span of 57 years, from 1954 to 2011. It gradually rolls the years by showing the worst of life to it’s earthly best. We have a desire to share our story with others in hopes that it might be a reference of rectifiable use in one’s own life. Our heart goes out to all who are experiencing “Life at it’s worst” But now, we know that things can always get better, We’re living proof.

Nathan der Prophet

eine Untersuchung zu 2Samuel 7 und 12 und 1Könige 1

Der Prophet Nathan stand bislang am Rande der Forschung, insbesondere gelang es nicht, ihn in die Geschichte des Prophetismus einzuordnen. Die Suche nach einer historischen Gestalt verhinderte die Rezeption der klar profilierten literarischen Gestalt des Nathan. Der Prophet Nathan ist im Rahmen der Thronfolge-Erzahlung der von Gott Gesandte, der in zwei tiefen Krisen (2Sam 11f., 1Kon 1) den Bestand des Hauses David rettet. Diese Rolle baut 2Sam 7 aus, worin Nathan zum Verkunder der ewigen Herrschaft des Hauses David wird. 2Sam 7 zielt auf die Begnadigung des deportierten Konigs (Jojachin, 2Kon 25,27-30). Die Verbindung zwischen beiden Texten wird durch das System der Dynastie-Orakel in den Konigebuchern hergestellt. Nathan ist somit der Hofprophet schlechthin, zwar nicht als Berater des historischen David, sehr wohl aber als prophetische Idealgestalt der spateren Konigszeit und der Exilszeit. Die vorliegende Untersuchung richtet sich an alle, die an der Theologie des Samuel- und des Konigebuches interessiert sind. Wolfgang Oswald, Dr. theol., Jahrgang 1958, ist wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter an der Evangelisch-Theologischen Fakultat der Universitat Tubingen und Privatdozent fur Altes Testament.
