1 Samuel: Reformed Expository Commentary [REC]
Two other significant figures--Samuel and Saul--appear in 1 Samuel. Samuel, an epochal figure whose significance equals that of Joshua, guides Israel out of the chaotic period of the judges and serves the coming of the Davidic kingdom. Saul an alter ego first to Samuel and then to David, personifies the idolatry and unbelief that plague Israel throughout the Old Testament. The ways in which he contrasts with Samuel and David provide valuable spiritual lessons.
The lesser characters in 1 Samuel are hardly incidental--Eli the corrupted priest, Hannah the tearful believer, and Jonathan the faithful friend to name just three.

Everything weve come to expect from Rick Phillips pen: painstaking exegesis, nuanced application, careful attention to relevance for todays world, discernible, memorable structure -- an outstanding model of Reformed, expository preaching of Old Testament historical narrative that embraces the redemptive-historical hermeneutic without avoiding exemplary, ethical exhortation for a contemporary world. A finer exposition of 1 Samuel you will not find.
"[These commentaries] are among the ones I have enjoyed the most . . . the commentaries are certainly easy to read, even for a guy with no formal theological training and very little knowledge of the original languages. If you have been looking for a guide to going deeper into the text of the Bible, these commentaries may be just the key. Unlike many commentaries, they are very reasonably priced."
Faithful expositions of Gods Word unpack the ordinary sense of a particular passage, within the scope of a book, as part of the unfolding mystery of the coming Messiah. Such preaching simultaneously instructs and transforms, disturbs and comforts; edifying in its godly exhortations as well as in its gospel proclamation. That is precisely what I have found in Richard Phillips commentary on 1 Samuel. This volume exemplifies for our own times the richness of the Reformed expository heritage.
Rick Phillips has once again provided the church with another indispensable tool in his expository commentary on 1 Samuel. Here are the memorable narratives of Samuel, Saul, and David carefully addressed and pastorally handled with special attention given to character development, historical background, sound doctrine, and practical application. To be sure, all who love Gods Word will surely want to consult this essential volume and add it to their personal library.
