The Daily Bible Study Series is the Old Testament companion to the Barclay's New Testament. This volume on 1 and 2 Samuel by David Payne begins with an introductory article which discusses the purpose, source, arrangement and contents of Samuel. The commentary is a scholarly but readable. A good commentary for a pastor or informed lay person.
The books of Samuel present a drama in which the principal players are the God of Israel, the prophet Samuel, and the first kings of Israel, Saul and David. In his masterful commentary David F. Payne shows that this Old Testament book combines history and theology as it narrates Samuel's virtues, Saul's defeats, and David's successes in relation to God's activities during an important phase in the life of Israel.
Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
David F. Payne served as Senior Lecturer in Semitic Studies at Queen's University of Belfast and Academic Dean of London Bible College. He is the author of several books and articles on the Old Testament.
