The Secret Chord

The Georgetown Book Club's December Selection

In her 2015 novel The Secret Chord, Geraldine Brooks explores the Biblical figure David, whose feats - particularly his triumph over Goliath - transcend religion by extending into popular culture. 

Framed as a chronicle of David's life written by his counselor Natan with his participation, the narrative traces events such as David's union of the tribes of Judah and Israel and includes insight from figures including his wife Avigail.
