In 1 Samuel: Looking on the Heart, Dale Ralph Davis brings cultural and historical colour to the task of interpretation and adds a pastor's heart for personal application. You will find a point of contact with the lives of Samuel, Saul, Jonathan and David as Davis answers the question 'What does God seek when he looks on the heart?' Davis presents simple exposition of the literary and theological character of the text in a bright and fascinating way.
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.
This volume is available for purchase individually, or as part of the Focus on the Bible Commentary Set (41 Vols.).
"A great feast of biblical truth made so digestible, garnished with so many apt illustrations." - Alec Motyer, (1924–2016) Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer
"This is the best expository commentary I have read in many years. It is comprehensive, up to date and easily read." - Eric Alexander, Conference speaker and formerly minister St George's Tron, Glasgow for 20 years
… readable and theologically reliable. This commentary is of value both as a book to be read and enjoyed and as a study book for preachers. It is excellent." - Evangelical Times
"...presents historical and theological material in a way that can only excite the expositor." - Warren W. Wiersbe, (1929 – 2019) Author and Conference Speaker
"One of the reasons I enjoy Davis’s exposition so much is that I feel confident that he has done his exegetical homework, and so is not just delivering blessed, unhistorical thoughts on the text. Yet at the same time, he applies the text so well." - Simon Gathercole, Director of Studies, Theology and Religious Studies, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge University, Cambridge
