I'm a commentary junkie. I love commentaries!

1 Samuel is my first venture into the Reformed Expository Commentary series. I picked up this book as an aid to a bible study I was leading through 1 Samuel with a fantastic group of senior adults. I had some other commentaries that were authored by Richard Phillips, so I knew him to be a sound theologian who handled the text well. His name actually drew me to try out this new series. And boy am I glad I did!

1 Samuel is not a technical commentary, though it does not ignore technical issues or syntactical difficulties. Phillips just deals with them in succinct ways and refers readers to more technical offerings if they still have questions. This commentary should be classified as pastoral. It would be an amazing tool for any pastor, bible study leader, or layman who yearns to read deeper. Phillips does a great job of viewing the narrative passages of 1 Samuel through a Christological lens. Without forced allegorization, he sees Christ and the covenantal nature of God in the text. He helps the reader to understand how the drama surrounding David, Samuel, and Saul point to spiritual truths that are more than moral tails.

I strongly recommend this work! ( )
