The 2 books of Samuel read like a Shakespeare play. There is so much drama and action throughout the two books. Mary J Evans brings a more relaxed style to the typical BST study that makes these thoroughly entertaining. She grabs the "theatre" of Samuel and draws the reader into the conspiracies, mayhem, deception and redemption of the two books.
At the same time she provides practical instruction and application, particularly in matters of leadership and Church leadership, that makes Samuel a very useful reference manual for todays leader.
I thoroughly recommend this study.
