Particularly interesting are Weitzman's assertions that certain Hebrew names are utilized as a literary device in the Solomon stories to define the life-purpose of various biblical characters. This claim opens the door for questioning the existence of many other biblical characters throughout the entire Hebrew Bible as well as the main characters in The New Testament (hopefully, a topic for Weitzman's next book).
Personally, I enjoyed Weitzman's style of writing, which is honest, refreshing, and down-to-earth. No pretense here nor any high-brow attitude that some academics like to use to impress us. To his credit, Weitzman has no religious agenda or theological bias. Instead, he presents a fascinating portrayal of a King Solomon, which is based on golden nuggets of inferences from biblical writers, redactors, and his vast knowledge of the subject.
