This new Preaching the Word volume explores ancient Israel's
leadership crisis in 1 Samuel and offers scriptural discernment for
leaders and followers today.

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, with its portrait of divine
response to ancient Israel's leadership crisis. That 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.

As John Woodhouse demonstrates, 1 Samuel's biblical context
provides serious reflection on our need for leadership and the
failure of human leaders. But it also reveals God's answer for
Israel, which turns out to be his answer for the whole world and
for each of us individually. This perceptive commentary not only
illumines Old Testament history but brilliantly points to the New
Testament promise that was fulfilled in Jesus, our sovereign leader
and Savior.
