The Old Testament book of 1 Samuel records the story of three important leaders in Israel's history: Samuel, Saul, and David. The lives of these flawed men showcase God's response to ancient Israel's leadership crisis, offering valuable lessons related to what God requires of his people and their leaders today. In this redesigned volume in Crossway's popular Preaching the Word commentary series, John Woodhouse shows how 1 Samuel reveals the importance of true leadership and the character of the godly leader. Even more importantly, this commentary points forward to Jesus Christ, the fulfillment of God's promises to his people and the only perfect leader the world has ever known.
