Item description for The Second Book of Samuel (Cambridge Bible Commentaries on the Old Testament) by Peter Ackroyd...
Overview Tells how David took over full control of both the Northern and Southern Hebrew kingdoms and consolidated his power, presented in CBC format.
Publishers Description Like the other volumes of the Cambridge Bible Commentary, this contains an introduction followed by the text of the New English Bible divided into sections. Each section of the text is followed by the commentary upon it. The Second Book of Samuel tells how David took over full control of both the northern and southern Hebrew kingdoms and consolidated his power throughout the region. Professor Ackroyd's commentary concentrates on interpretation rather than historical reconstruction, and part of his introduction dealing with the theological significance of the Books of Samuel relates the religious tradition stemming from the Bible to present-day ways of thinking.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Second Book of Samuel (Cambridge Bible Commentaries on the Old Testament)?
Excellent annotation and commentaries. May 12, 1999
This is an excellent annotated version of The Second Book of Samuel of the New English Bible translation supplemented with detailed commentaries and entries based upon historical and archaelogical data. I learned a great deal of ancient history that would not be available to be simply by reading Samuel. this book, and others in the series, are a must for any serious Bible scholar.
