King: From the books of the Bible

290 pages4 hours


The subject of the King, based on thematic studies conducted by Fernando D’Amico and Jacques Wisman, is proposed in this book as a themed walk through the passages of Scripture from the Old and New Testament. The biblical text (KJV) is presented deliberately devoid of additional comments to offer an immediate and direct perception of the selected track.
The thematic reading of the biblical text opens to the reader as a fascinating experience that allows him to benefit in a short time, a surprising and rich picture of content.
As part of the sacred texts, the figure of the king takes on a symbolic relationship between the human and the divine. The king embodies the temporal power, but gets his legitimacy by divine will and consent of the people. Two limits and at the same time two guides that illuminate the proper exercise of political power so that no overflows as a swollen river in arrogance and violence against its own people.
