Dale Ralph Davis brings cultural and historical color to the task of interpreting one of the most studied parts of the Bible. The lessons in 2 Samuel from the life of Israel, and David in particular, have obvious modern parallels. Davis writes with a pastor's heart AND the incisive brain of a respected theologian specializing in the Old Testament texts.
Focus on the Bible commentaries are popular level commentaries especially useful for pastors and small group leaders. They are also useful for personal devotions and spiritual growth. The series holds to the inerrancy of scripture and the uniqueness of Christ in salvation.
"... merits a five-star rating. This book is everything a commentary ought to be... preachers, Bible group leaders and belivers eager to understand 2 Samuel should sell their shirt to purchase this excellent commentary!" - The Banner of Truth Magazine
"He combines the depth of understanding of a thorough-going Old Testament scholar with the breadth of insight of a biblical theologian and the perception of a preacher well used to addressing contemporary audiences to provide us with a commentary that brings the preaching potential of these books to life." - Mark Johnston, Minister, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff, Wales
"Writers will say, Why can't I write like that? Scholars, Why am I not so well read? Expositors, Why didn't I see it all like that too? And readers will join in unanimous praise for a great feast of biblical truth made so digestible, garnished with so many apt illustrations and always focused on the God of all Grace. I have lost count of the number of titbits transferred to my notebooks for future use!" - Alec Motyer, (1924–2016) Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer
"Such sensitivity to the biblical theology of the text is a crucial correction to much of modern exposition...Reading the commentary is itself a devotional exercise." - John W. Hilder in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society on Davis' commentary writing skills.
