Format: Hardcover
Walter Brueggemann is an extraordinary communicator. His scholarly credentials are impeccable but he combines his academic prowess with an ability to communicate spiritual insights which are perceptive and down to earth. This is the best commentary on Samuel that I have ever used and still sets the benchmark for current attempts. If you want to study Samuel, this is where to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Commentary! 6 Feb. 2013
By Tyler Tankersley - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A helpful commentary from a moderate perspective. Like his Interpretation commentary on Genesis, Brueggemann refuses to get bogged down with historical questions, and instead brings his insight into the theological realm. He effectively paints a picture of a Davidic Israel, and demonstrates God's unmitigated hesed towards the house of David. Particularly insightful is his analysis of 2 Samuel 7: "The plushness of the proposed temple contradicts Yahweh's self-understanding. Yahweh will not be bought off, controlled, or domesticated by such luxury. Yahweh has been a free God and will continue to be. The royal apparatus is not able to make Yahweh its patron" (254).
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent comments. I especially enjoyed reading about David 5 July 2016

Excellent comments. I especially enjoyed reading about David, Saul and Jonathan. Am using this for teaching 1 & 2 Samuel in Bible class at our church. Brueggemann is a thoughtful Bible student and an excellent, provacative writer.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great for sparking your imagination 25 Jun. 2013
By Anthony Jones - Published on

I need to start out by saying I am a pretty big fan of Brueggemann.
This is a great commentary that gives you insight on the OVERARCHING themes and narrative of Samuel. His writing is poetic and convicting. If you are wanting a technical commentary you will be disappointed the intent of this commentary is to give you themes, some clarity and most of spark your imagination as to how you would like to teach/preach on the text of First and Second Samuel.

A clear, helpful interpretation of First Samuel. I have met Dr. BRUEGGEMANN and he is most friendly and engaging.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 22 Oct. 2013

I have several books in this series and this is just as great as the others. Brueggemann has always delivered with his tastes and points on Hebrew literature. This was great.
