Item Description...
Overview
Sheds light on the background of 1 Samuel by looking carefully at the Philistine and Canaanite cultures, and he untangles the difficult Hebrew text. Also discusses such fundamental matters as the date, literary structure, and purpose of 1 Samuel - to show that obedience to the word of God is the necessary condition for a king to be acceptable to the God of Israel.

Publishers Description

David and Goliath, the call of Samuel, the witch of Endor, David and Bathsheba -- such biblical stories are well known. But the books of 1 and 2 Samuel, where they are recorded, are among the most difficult books in the Bible. The Hebrew text is widely considered corrupt and sometimes even unintelligible. The social and religious customs are strange and seem to diverge from the tradition of Moses. In this first part of an ambitious two-volume commentary on the books of Samuel, David Toshio Tsumura sheds considerable light on the background of 1 Samuel, looking carefully at the Philistine and Canaanite cultures, as he untangles the difficult Hebrew text.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent commentary for wrestling with the meaning of the text  May 3, 2008
Having used a number of different commentaries over the years when preaching through Samuel I have found this commentary in a league of its own. The author seriously engages with the text itself rather than overly dwelling on the textual issues which though of some importance become very frustrating when they dominate in a commentary. He brings insight and conveys the sense that he genuinely likes the first book of Samuel. I unreservedly recommend it and look forward to his second volume.
 
A magnificent work from the long-accomplished  Mar 31, 2007
At last a conservative, semi-technical commentary on 1 Samuel (2 Samuel to follow)! Tsumura unravels the difficult Hebrew text, paying attention to the Canaanite and Philistine cultures which serves as the backdrop to this enigmatic book. His knowledge of ancient Semitic languages, Hebrew poetry, and discourse analysis are brought to bear in this tour-de-force.

Previously, he has authored The Earth & the Waters in Genesis 1 & 2 (Journal for the Study of the Old Testament), Creation And Destruction: A Reappraisal of the Chaoskampf Theory in the Old Testament; a study which upholds the biblical concept of creation ex nihilo (from nothing) rather than an earth formed from primeval chaos, and co-edited "I Studied Inscriptions from Before the Flood": Ancient Near Eastern, Literary, and Linguistic Approaches to Genesis 1-11 (Sources for Biblical and Theological Study Old Testament Series).
