Absalom by Master Lazarus DelaCruz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Absalom's rebellion against king David his father is one of the most unhappy events in the history of the people of Israel. It is recorded in the second book of Samuel chapters 15, 16, 17 and 18. King David had already experienced numerous trials and troubles in his earlier life due to the jealousy of king Saul, and because of the constant warfare he had to do against many enemies of Israel. Yet none of those events were as painful and devastating for him as the rebellion of his beloved son, and his subsequent tragic death. The pain and lamentation of David was misunderstood by his nephew and general Joab, a shrewd and proud man, who had murdered Absalom against the express command of the king to deal gently with the young man. Joab killed Absalom and subsequently threatened David with a new rebellion and the worst one of his life. The author's educational experiences include schools in Greece, Scotland, England and the U.SA. He has studied the dramatic works of the Greek classical dramatists and poets such as Sophocles, Euripedes, Homer, and Aeschylus. He had studied the works of William Shakespeare, John Milton and T.S. Elliott in particular. The purpose of classical drama is education and instruction of the audience and not only entertainment. The author has adopted this principle in this present work. He trusts that this personal work will be both instructive and helpful to the reader.
