Publisher's Description

The books of 1 and 2 Samuel witness the transition of Israel from tribal confederacy to established monarchy. As such, questions of identity and power are unavoidable. In the aftermath of the decline of the judges, priests abuse their priestly privileges, a people covets the centralized authority of its impious neighbors, and a throne is won, forsaken, redeemed, lost and found again.

In the key characters in this dawning era of Israelite history we see, hidden behind the faults and failings of Israel's best and brightest, the faithfulness of a God who looks on the heart and directs the path of every king and every kingdom.

About the Author

Mary J. Evans teaches Old Testament at London Bible College. She is the author of 1 and 2 Samuel in the New International Bible Commentary and Woman in the Bible, and coeditor of The IVP Women's Bible Commentary.
