Teaching 1 Samuel
From Text to Message
This is an excellent book in a great series. It will foster preaching that is firmly grounded in the text, richly theological and viewing the book as an important part of Christian scripture. It is biblical theology at its best. Andrew does not try to read Christ into the book of 1 Samuel, but rather discerns the message of book and then shows how our understanding of this must be shaped by the coming of Christ. There are great insights here about why we should teach from these rich narratives. He builds on his earlier commentary and a lifetime of powerful preaching to provide a major resource for the church as it gathers around the word. It contains great practical help and advice aimed at both preachers and bible study leaders. This book is pure gold, making it a
‘must have’ if you want to teach others how to teach God’s truth from narrative.
