Dale Ralph Davis brings cultural and historical colour to the task of interpreting one of the most studied parts of the Bible. The lessons in 2 Samuel from the life of Israel, and David in particular, have obvious modern parallels. It not only covers the history of David's reign as King it also details the merger of Judah into Israel. Davis writes with a pastor's heart AND the incisive brain of a respected theologian specialising in the Old Testament texts. Alec Moyter has written... 'Writers will say, Why can't I write like that? Scholars, Why am I not so well read? Expositors, Why didn't I see it all like that too? And readers will join in unanimous praise for a great feast of biblical truth made so digestible... I have lost count of the number of titbits transferred to my notebooks for future use!'
