Description

2 Samuel is a story of triumph and disaster, both personal and national. It is the account of the rise and fall and rise of a great king, David of Israel. But it is also the story of the God who rules his people, who forgives his people, and who promises to send the King whose greatest fall will bring our eternal rise.

This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike. It is less academic than a commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotion, as well as useful for leading small group studies or sermon preparation.

There is an accompanying Good Book Guide available.

“An excellent primer and good book to get a bible study or sermon going”

(Review written for '2 Samuel For You (ebook)')

Tim Chester is always a solid expositor of the word and this book doesn't fail to live up to that. I have been preaching through the life of David had have found myself quoting from this more than any other commentary - simply because at a popular level, it carries its big ideas lightly and makes it very accessible. But don't think that means its light on content. The questions raised at the end of each section give much for reflection as does the content which is well communicated and at times movingly fresh with a gospel emphasis which doesn't distort the text but points to the one greater than David. As with 1 Sam & Revelation for you, this takes what many take whole chapters to say and condenses it into readily accessible everyday language. This book is like one of those small bottles of concentrated washing liquid in which a little goes a long way. Great read, great book, highly recommend.

“Well worth reading”

(Review written for 'David: God's True King')

An exceptionally strong insight into the nature of David. He wore his heart on his sleeve and so often we can find echoes of our own feelings in his psalms. It is reassuring to know God loved David's honesty, even when he was angry with God. This book helps explore David, and is well worth a read.
