1 Samuel: Looking for a Leader (Preaching the Word)

Woodhouse, John

Endorsements ()

Product Description

What kind of leaders should we follow? What kind of leaders should we be? And what does God have to do with it? These are some of the questions inherent in 1 Samuel, as well as some of the questions facing us in modern society, and even within the church.

Ancient Israel's massive leadership crisis was met through three men-Samuel, Saul, and David—in ways that forever changed the character of Israel's leadership and clarified what God requires of his people and their leaders. But as John Woodhouse demonstrates in this perceptive Preaching the Word commentary, 1 Samuel's portrait of the divine response to Israel's dilemma does more than reveal what God expects. The book's canonical context provides serious reflection on the human need for leadership and the failure of human leaders, as well as scriptural discernment for leaders and followers here and now. Even more, it reveals God's answer for Israel, which turns out to be his answer for the entire world and for each person individually.

Woodhouse both illumines Old Testament history and brilliantly connects it to the New Testament promise that was fulfilled in Jesus, our sovereign leader and Savior. And his insightful, verse-by-verse exposition gives you the tools you need to understand, apply, and dynamically communicate the biblical text with clarity.
