Samuel. Saul. David. Goliath. Jonathan. When we think of 1 & 2 Samuel, these names and the stories that make them memorable generally come to mind. But these narratives are more than mere history.

Peter Leithart offers here a typological reading of 1 & 2 Samuel as a unified book. By giving careful attention to the book's literary structures and its patterns of types and antitypes, Leithart unveils the symbolic world of Samuel's cumulative and cohesive story. His reading enhances our understanding of New Testament Christology while at the same time giving us a framework for applying the Old Testament to our own lives.

    It is interesting to put into perspective the instruction that I should read give due diligence to 1 Sam & 2 Sam. and that I should give it my best. And here I should engage my attention to such an interesting book. I look forward to putting hands on this book and to dissecting it.
