1 & 2 Samuel

This volume of the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary represents the final work of renowned scholar Harry A. Hoffner, Jr. An expert Hittitologist, Hoffner brings his understanding of ancient Near Eastern cultures to the text of 1–2 Samuel, providing a commentary that is sure to make an impact for years to come. First and Second Samuel pick up where the book of Judges leaves off, continuing the narrative sweep of the history of Israel. They cover the life of the prophet Samuel, the rise and fall of Saul as King, and the reign of King David. Hoffner examines these books in their historical context, he discusses the many characters found throughout, and he considers how they anticipate a coming perfect king, Yahweh’s true Anointed One.
