The first book-length treatment of the most important, and controversial, inscription found in Israel in recent years. The inscription contains a possible mention of the name 'David' and is thought by many scholars to verify the existence of this king. Contains a full account of the discovery, epigraphic analysis, palaeographical analysis, possible arrangement of the three fragments discovered, textual analysis and historical commentary. It is more thorough in each of these treatments than any preceding discussion, and reviews all of the major theories about the inscription, with a well-considered conclusion.

George Athas

"The author moves carefully through each line of the inscription, painstakingly interpreting the Hebrew and comparing it with what is found on other fragments. The charts, tables, graphs, and drawings are quite detailed, and the bibliography at the end of the book demonstrates the scholarly nature of the study. This book is meant for those who know quite a bit about archaeology." - Dianne Bergant, The Bible Today, May / June 2007--Sanford Lakoff
