The YCT Tanakh Companion to the Book of Samuel is a collection of lectures by gifted Bible scholars that treat passages and themes in Samuel to an eye-opening close reading. The topics are wide ranging, and provide refreshing new perspectives on the familiar stories-while always remaining true to the text.

Some of the questions addressed in this book are: What does God look for in a leader? Why is David chosen to rule and Saul rejected? How does the Book of Samuel relate to the Book of Kings and the Book of Judges? What is the significance of David's relationships to Michal, Abigail and Batsheva? How do some of the more obscure passages in the book reveal important lessons?

The essays combine the observations of modern literary criticism -- the search for parallels and other patterns -- with the insights of the midrash and subsequent classical Jewish Biblical scholarship. The original lectures have been edited to increase clarity while maintaining their original informality. The result is a readable volume that helps to bring a "big picture" understanding to our study of the Book of Samuel through close attention to the smallest of details.

Paperback. 284 pages.
