Item description for Commentary-I Samuel (Word Biblical Commentary V10) by Ralph W. Klein...

This is the leading scholarly commentary series firmly committed to Scripture as the Word of God.

In this commentary, Dr. Klein uses the tools and techniques of historical criticism to interpret the final, deuteronomistic form of the book of Samuel. For each pericope, he supplies a bibliography, a fresh translation, and extensive text-critical notes. Because of the complex charater of the Masoretic Text, Dr. Klein gives extensive space to text-critical questions. Yet, readers with no dvanced skills in Hebrew or interest in textual criticism may pass over the Notes and fully understand the rest of the commentary. Dr. Klein has chosen a historical reading as the best way to describe what 1 Samuel meant to its original audience. He has also taken care to appreciate the aestheic qualities of the text and to read it as a whole, the way in which those who first read or heard 1 Samuel unders

Publishers Description

Dr. Ralph Klein interprets 1 Samuel in its literary context as part of the Deuteronomistic History, the epic account of Israel's history from the settlement in the land (Joshua and Judges) through the rise of kingship (1 & 2 Samuel) to the history of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah to their end in exile. He expounds the stories about Samuel, Saul and David within the context of this exilic composition that recounts the high and low points of Israel's history in the land.

Now, in a new supplement to the introduction, Dr. Klein interacts with recent studies of the history reflected in 1 Samuel, and of the history of both the text and composition of 1 Samuel itself. He also adds extensive reviews of the literary studies that have marked scholarship on Samuel in the last twenty-five years. Klein evaluates the contributions of narratology and feminism to understanding the stories of 1 Samuel, especially the characterization of Saul and David.

The result is a fresh assessment of the book's contribution to biblical theology, especially in its focus on David as the man after God's own heart.
