Commentary on 1-2 Samuel

by Ralph D. Gehrke

First and Second Samuel are two of my favorite books in the Bible. I've lamented aloud once or twice about how long I have to wait before The Concordia Commentary Series gets around to publishing their commentary on the books. My wife took that as a hint and got me this book, also published by CPH in 1968. While not as in depth as one of the big blue books, Rev. Gehrke's tome does just what a commentary should do--take the reader through the biblical text, offering historical information and showing how it all fits in with the larger story of Scripture. It was easy and enjoyable to read.

I'm glad to have it on my shelf.
