Adrian H. Curtis is Senior Lecturer in Old Testament Studies in the University of Manchester.David G. Firth is Lecturer in Old Testament and Director of Research St Johns College Nottingham UK.Introduces students and readers to the text and covers all major interpretative issuesExamines literary factors: genre authorship background and attempts to read the text as a unified wholePresents complex material to students (particularly about the various Kings) in a manageable wayDavid Firth is Lecturer in Old Testament and Director of Research St Johns College Nottingham UK.Scholarly study of Samuel continues to wrestle with how we interpret this pivotal text. Even such basic matters as the question of what kind of literature it is remain unresolved while older questions such as the nature of its text and sources are debated anew in the light of material from Qumran and of current approaches to Hebrew narrative. Recognizing the importance of questions such as these David Firth explores and introduces fresh ways of reading Samuel as a unified and yet complex text which displays high levels both of literary artistry and of theological commitment.Although some stories in the books of Samuel are well known and in the case of David and Goliath even proverbial much of the content of these books is strange to modern readers. It is a story about a woman wanting a child for example that relates the beginnings of monarchy within Israel. Even the question of the monarchy is problematic for we are introduced to not one royal family but twothose of Saul and David. David is ultimately shown to be the king chosen by God yet by the end of the book he is only just managing to hold on to the kingdom as it is nearly torn from him by rivalries within his family. These arresting stories are perplexing for Samuels writers seldom tell us how to read and interpret them. Firth presents these complex and fascinating stories as part of a bigger picture enabling students to chart their way through the literary and historical issues of the Samuel narrative. Firth addresses issues of historicity sources date and authorship as well as crucially appreciating the text as a literary whole.David Firth introduces students to the complex literary theological and historical issues surrounding the books of Samuel.Preface1.
