The power of story as God's word to the community of faith is never more clear than in the books of Samuel and in this interpretation by Eugene Peterson. All the emotion, drama, complexity of character, and mystery of good stories are to be found in these two biblical books.Beginning with the story of Hannah, the mother of Samuel, the books describe Saul and the beginning of kingship in ancient Israel. The focus, however, remains steadfastly upon David. His story becomes a powerful vehicle for thinking about God's chosen leaders and their triumphs and failures.Peterson's interpretation emphasizes the resonance and interplay between these stories of kings and prophets and the social and cultural issues that concern us today.
