The books of 1 and 2 Samuel witness the transition of Israel from tribal confederacy to established monarchy. As such, questions of identity and power are unavoidable. In the aftermath of the decline of the judges, priests abuse their priestly privileges, a people covers the centralized authority of its impious neighbors, and a throne is won, forsaken, redeemed, lost and found again. In the key characters in this dawning era of Israelite history we see, hidden behind the faults and failings of Israel's best and brightest, the faithfulness of a God who looks on the heart and directs the path of every king and every kingdom.'

Review 1 for The Message of Samuel: The Bible Speaks Today [BST]
Date:October 8, 2010
I & II Samuel is well written and well organized for good clarity and readability. The factual information is most helpful and where there are differences of understanding, meaning or interpretation, they are presented in an even-handed and balanced manner. It is consistent in quality with other books in the "The Bible Speaks Today" series
