This addition to the well-received Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible offers theological exegesis of 1 Samuel. This commentary, like each in the series, is designed to serve the church—providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups—and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.

"The Brazos Commentary offers just the right level of light to make illuminating the word the joy it was meant to be."—Calvin Miller, author of A Hunger for the Holy and Loving God Up Close
