Reviews - What do customers think about First and Second Samuel (WBC) (Westminster Bible Companion)?

Insightful and lively  Mar 14, 2008
Peterson's ability to see the interrelatedness of the text is obvious in this commentary. His work emphasizes literary analysis over historical background material. At times he takes literary liberty with the interpretation (Nathan is David's "pastor") but his ability to penetrate the text and bring out the greater message makes the book a rewarding read. The book is insightful and refreshing. Especially helpful is this work for any studying the life of David.
Clear and Challenging Commentary  Dec 19, 2006
This commentary is readable and challenging personally. It is excellent for personal use, teaching and sermon preperation. Peterson does not go into minute detail but uses the stories of Hannah, Samuel, Saul, and David to challenge individuals today. I have never been disappointed in a Eugene Peterson book. I have not read the other commentaries in this series but intend to and hope they are also readable and easily applied to life today.
Excellent homiletical commentary  Oct 6, 2006
Eugene Peterson has written a wonderful commentary on 1 and 2 Samuel. While he does not get bogged down in the original language, he deals with language issues and theological problems adequately enough for the typical pastor. Peterson also makes practical application of the text in a biblical way. Peterson is reliably evangelical and reformed. As I preached through 1 Samuel I found this book along with the commentary by D. R. Davis my two favorite resources.
