Description

The intertwined stories of Samuel the prophet and David, arguably greatest of the kings of Israel, have fascinated people ever since they were first written down, more than two thousand years ago.

From God's gift of a son for Hannah to the last days of King David, the books known as 1 & 2 Samuel tell of larger-than-life heroes, desert warfare, politicla intrigues, adultery, murder, wise women, undying freindship, and the powerful bonds between parent and child.

Throughout all that happens, the storyteller's aim is to show God at work - bestowing and removing his blessing, bringing both success and disaster, guiding human events to fulfil his promises to the people of Israel.

Harry Mowvley takes us systematically through these vital books in 113 readings, each with a double-page spread of commentary that will address both head and heart.
