The Old Testament historical books of 1 and 2 Samuel contain well-known stories about Hannah, Samuel, Saul, David and Absalom, which have been fruitful sources for innumerable Sunday school lessons and some classic oil paintings and musical compositions.
Mary Evans engages with these books in the conviction that they are a vital part of God's Word, full of teaching that is dynamically relevant for all Christian believers. Exploring how we should interpret and respond to the stories today is both challenging and exciting. This accessible and stimulating study takes us into the narratives, creatively brings out their application and provides questions for further reflection.
Mary J. Evans is lecturer in Old Testament and BTh course leader at London Bible College. She is the author of Woman in the Bible, Prophets of the Lord and the New International Biblical Commentary on 1 and 2 Samuel, and co-editor of The IVP Women's Bible Commentary.
