The Message of 1 & 2 Samuel
Personalities, Potential, Politics And Power
Mary J Evans
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.
