Ralph Davis has way with language. He faithfully exegetes a passage while giving sometimes humorous, and always insightful, illustrations and commentary. His work is filled with enjoyment at the same time it digs deeply into your soul. This - and any other Ralph Davis work - is well worth your time and money. "Buy the truth and sell it not."

A very good commentary at the laymans level that is full of information that is informative, entertaining and motivates to make you want to know more...And most importantly, never deviates from absolute truth.

I have read through this commentary two times, and have really enjoyed it. I must admit I did not know very much about this book of God's Word, but since I've read this, 1 Samuel has become one of my favorite books in the Old Testament.
Dr. Davis does a tremendous job explaining the text, but doing it in a way that makes it fun, interesting, and practical for every day life. I cannot recommend this commentary enough.

Well-written, interesting to read commentary. Reading a few chapters of 1 Samuel, then reading through some of Davis' book was a great way to spend my personal devotional time, and an interesting way to study the Bible. Highly recommended. I am going to try his other Old Testament works.

Excellent commentary that digs at the heart of the text. One of the best commentaries I own. I promptly purchased every commentary he has written (Joshua, Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel).
