9780814628423: First and Second Samuel (NEW COLLEGEVILLE BIBLE COMMENTARY: OLD TESTAMENT)

First and Second Samuel tell the story of the beginnings of monarchy in ancient Israel. These two powerful narratives present many great figures of biblical history 'Samuel, Saul, and David 'and explore the complex interaction of historical developments and human fidelity under God. In the books of Samuel, characters interact to influence and persuade, to express motivation and desire, and to shape the reader's understanding of the issues that faced the Israelites as they responded to God's invitation to covenant. Through the medium of story, the reader shares in the perennial struggle to discover, in the midst of personal and political conflict, God's ways for humanity.

About the Author:

Fr. Feidhlimidh T. Magennis is a priest of the Diocese of Dromore, Ireland. After completing his License in Sacred Scripture at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome, he taught in Ireland and Canada. He is currently a principal lecturer in religious studies at St. Mary's University College, Belfast.

Review:

The author traces the convoluted path which took God’s people from fiercely independent tribes to a community under the Davidic dynasty. His clear, concise, and flowing commentary elucidate the comical clashes that occur when God’s guiding presence and power are made known to people in new ways. At the center of the ancient tale are tensions that arise between human plans and preferences, and divine choices which highlight God’s freedom. Ultimately, readers are led to reflect on how one comes to recognize God’s will and how, even though humans misperceive and make mistakes, God corrects their sins and rectifies their consequences.’Elizabeth Nagel, SSD, Professor, Department of Biblical Exegesis and Proclamation, Mundelein Seminary

This commentary combines wealth of biblical scholarship with depth of perception and clarity of communication. The result is a thoroughly comprehensive introduction to the Books of Samuel. It's an excellent resource for first-time students and for preachers of the Word. With its thought-provoking review and discussion section it’s a must for Bible study groups.Ciarán O’Callaghan CSsR, Dublin, Ireland
