Beginning with the calling of Samuel, the creation of a monarchy, and the anointing of Saul, the books of Samuel culminate in David’s ascendancy to the throne over a strong and united kingdom of Israel. Yet trouble continues to brood beneath the surface: adultery and murder, violence, and early evidence for a rift which would result in a divided kingdom only two generations later. J. Carl Laney helps us put the pieces of 1 & 2 Samuel together, explains their significance in the Bible, and reveals the continued hand of Yahweh at work in His people.
