Praise for the Print Edition

Murphy is at her perceptive and witty best in 1 Samuel. Her truly remarkable breadth of reading, awareness of the ambiguity of both power and vision, love of scripture, and sense of what the church is about today make this a powerful and relevant contribution.

—Iain Torrance, president, Princeton Theological Seminary

[Francesca Murphy] pays fastidious attention to the theological readings passed down to us throughout the centuries, from Origen to von Balthasar. She does not discard the modern hermeneutic; rather, she uses it in the service of doing faithful theology for our time.

—David Fitch, B. R. Lindner Chair of Evangelical Theology, Northern Seminary
