Often commentaries spend enormous effort analyzing ancient manuscripts, performing original-language word studies, and setting out minute grammatical analyses. This series, however, concentrates on questions of theology---how Christian doctrine was formulated from passages in Scripture, then evolved historically. Intriguing! 240 pages, hardcover.
The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible encourages readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition should inform and shape faithfulness today. In this addition to the series, highly acclaimed author, speaker, and theologian Robert Barron offers a theological exegesis of 2 Samuel. He highlights three major themes: God's non-competitive transcendence, the play between divine and non-divine causality, and the role of Old Testament kingship. As with other volumes in the series, this book is ideal for those called to ministry, serving as a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups.
Robert Barron (STD, Institut Catholique de Paris) is rector of Mundelein Seminary and president of the University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois. He founded Word on Fire, a Catholic ministry of evangelism, and has written numerous books, including Exploring Catholic Theology and The Priority of Christ.
