How I wish this book had been available years ago when I as a young minister tried to preach on the life of King Saul.
Dr. Cyril Barber has given us a commentary on 1 Samuel that balances dependable information, spiritual interpretation, and practical application. I predict that in years to come this volume will be a standard reference work for serious Bible students and careful expository preachers. But there is no dull academic atmosphere in these pages. The book is a joy to read. Dr. Barber makes ancient history exciting and practical, and he does so without spiritualizing the text.
You will enjoy using this book. It will open up new facets of truth for you to receive and apply in your own life and then share with others.
