40 Days in 1 Samuel is part of a series of devotionals written for any Christian desiring to deepen his or her understanding of Scripture. 

The Holy Spirit uses God’s Word to grow believers in their faith and increase their passion for Jesus. As each volume focuses on a particular book in the Bible, believers will find the study useful for the enrichment of daily devotional reading or as the basis for small group Bible study discussion. 

In this volume, readers will be led through a daily study of the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel. 40 Days in 1 Samuel breaks down the book of 1 Samuel into chunks that present the “Big Picture” of the passage, then “Digging Deeper” into that section, and then moving to help the reader into “Living Out” the lessons that are taught each day.
