First and Second Samuel (Interpretation Bible Commentaries Series)

Walter Brueggemann

$75.00

Hardback
Also Available In
Interpretation is a set of full-length, practical, and clearly written commentaries that help teachers and preachers in their educational and homiletic work -- and laypersons in their study of the Bible. Interpretation bridges the gap between critical and expository commentaries and combines the most exciting biblical scholarship with illuminating textual expositions.

- Publisher The books of Samuel are so packed with good stories, one right after another, that their theological significance is easy to overlook. In this new Interpretation volume, Brueggemann uses literary analysis to show how the writer of Samuel describes God's actions in human history. He is not so much interested in how the books of Samuel were put together, as in how they communicate God's care to his people. Preachers and teachers will find this ''big picture'' especially helpful. Hardcover from John Knox, 420 pages.
