Publisher's Description

Davis brings cultural and historical color to the task of interpreting one of the most studied parts of the Bible. The lessons in 2 Samuel from the life of Israel, and David in particular, have obvious modern parallels. Davis writes with a pastor's heart and the incisive brain of a respected theologian specializing in the Old Testament texts.

“He combines the depth of understanding of a thorough-going Old Testament scholar with the breadth of insight of a biblical theologian and the perception of a preacher well used to addressing contemporary audiences to provide us with a commentary that brings the preaching potential of these books to life.”
- Mark Johnston, Proclamation Presbyterian Church, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania

“Writers will say, Why can't I write like that? Scholars, Why am I not so well read? Expositors, Why didn't I see it all like that too? And readers will join in unanimous praise for a great feast of biblical truth made so digestible, garnished with so many apt illustrations and always focused on the God of all Grace. I have lost count of the number of tidbits transferred to my notebooks for future use!”
- Alec Motyer

“Dale Ralph Davis’ exposition of 2 Samuel has been eagerly awaited and does not disappoint. As with his earlier work this volume stands out first for its excellent Biblical Theology, so that 2 Samuel is seen in the whole sweep of salvation history leading to Christ. Secondly, although the focus is firmly on Jesus, Dr Davis’ careful scholarship and examination of the text means that each chapter produces its own fresh message. Thirdly, Dr Davis’ lively style and homely illustrations make it a delight to read and a mine for preachers. I cannot recommend it too highly.”
Jonathan Fletcher

“This is no ordinary commentary but an exposure of the very heart and soul of a Biblical book. You will be taken by the hand and sometimes by the scrub of the neck into the Israelite world of three millennia ago, but at the same time you will see Second Samuel’s witness to Christ and be made to face real issues of Christian discipleship in today’s world. All this is done with such scholarship, such insight, such verve and with such a unique style (he even adds a few new words to the English language!) that the book is compelling reading.”
Geoffrey Grogan

“Such sensitivity to the biblical theology of the text is a crucial correction to much of modern exposition...Reading the commentary is itself a devotional exercise.”
- John W. Hilder, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
