About-

Driver intended this volume to provide insight toward the philology and textual criticism of the Old Testament. He regarded Samuel as an excellent field for training the intermediate Hebrew student in the uses of Hebrew idiom. Driver also regarded the books of Samuel as filled with transcriptional corruption, thus quite appropriate for introduction to the grounds and principles of textual criticism.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This volume does not purport to be a full commentary, but is the finest example in English of
the close examination of Hebrew syntax and text criticism."

Brevard Childs
