Reviews - What do customers think about Focus on the Bible - 1 Samuel: Looking on the Heart (Focus on the Bible Commentaries)?

A Great Place to Start for 1 & 2 Samuel  Jul 11, 2008
If what you are looking for is a deeply exegetical discussion of 1 Samuel, this is not the book for you. While Davis' work is based upon sound exegesis, it is more of a practical explanation of the text in ways that are easily understood and applied. No pastor who takes the Bible seriously should fail to have this book on his shelf when studying 1 Samuel. His commentary on 2 Samuel and 1 & 2 Kings are also equally as helpful.
 
The Platonic ideal of commentaries  Aug 16, 2005
D. Ralph Davis' commentaries (Judges, Joshua, I Sam., II Sam., I Kgs) -- ALL are consisently amazing. In fact, if I had just one commentary on each of thsoe books I'd take Davis.

Davis is a former OT seminary prof, with a PhD., but has also been a pastor (Presbyterian PCA) for many years. These are all non-technical, unfootnoted, homiletical treatments. They are theologically rich, always Christocentric (or at least Christo-telic), well-illustrated, and relentlessly practical. Davis can turn a clever phrase like very few writers.

I was shocked that fellow PCAer Tremper Longman did not even include any Ralph Davis books in his survey of commentaries (though Longman treats lots and lots of inferior works).

I have two copies of each of Davis' commentaries (one for home, one for the office).

Davis is the best, but there are some other works on I Sam that are also good. Peter Leithart's A Son to Me is a little too speculative on the typology, but is often brilliant. Joyce Baldwin's volume is one of th very best in the whole (excellent) Tyndale OT set.
