From the private sorrows of Hannah to the action-packed reign of King David, the narratives of 1 and 2 Samuel make for a gripping read. But how do you best study these stories? What bearing do they have on Christ, the New Testament, or your life today? Kay Gabrysch answers these questions while helping us develop a lasting framework for reading biblical narratives. Recurring "big questions" explore characterization, setting, worldview, conflict, resolution, and relation to Christ. Questions specific to the passages cross-reference to the rest of Scripture. Application questions go straight to your heart and life. Ideal for groups or individuals.
