When people think of 1 Samuel, they think of David, the man after God’s own heart. Yet 1 Samuel introduces us to two great alter egos – Samuel and Saul. And let’s not forget Eli, Hannah, and Jonathan!
“…easy to read, even for a guy with no formal theological training and very little knowledge of the original languages. If you have been looking for a guide to going deeper into the text of the Bible, these commentaries may be just the key. Unlike many commentaries, they are very reasonably priced.” – Tim Challies
“Everything we’ve come to expect from Rick Phillips’ pen: painstaking exegesis, nuanced application, careful attention to relevance for today’s world, discernible, memorable structure — an outstanding model of Reformed, expository preaching . . . A finer exposition of 1 Samuel you will not find.” – Derek Thomas
“Faithful expositions of God’s Word unpack the ordinary sense of a particular passage, within the scope of a book, as part of the unfolding mystery of the coming Messiah. . . . That is precisely what I have found in Richard Phillip’s commentary on 1 Samuel. This volume exemplifies for our own times the richness of the Reformed expository heritage.” – Michael Horton
