The Rhetoric of Political Persuasion

The Narrative Artistry and Political Intentions of 2 Kings 9-11

2 Kings 9-11 which details the events that led to the overthrow of Jehoram, king of Israel, and of Athaliah queen of Judah, is considered to be one of the finest examples of classical Hebrew narrative. This work deals with the text's composition (including the literary relationship of 2 Kgs 11 tro 2 Kgs 9-10), the literary dimensions of the work, and an appreciation of the artistic techniques that the author employed to convey his message effectively.
