1 Samuel: Choose your King

Watch the trailer
Also available

1 Samuel is a book of barrenness and battles, kings and schemes, shepherds and giants. It recounts the history of Israel as it moved from no king, to the king it demanded, to the king God knew his people needed.

But its greatest excitement lies not in the events and characters, but in the person they all point to. 1 Samuel presents us with a wonderful picture of Jesus. Seeing him in and through this Old Testament book enables us to see him with fresh color and texture, and see afresh what it means for us to follow him today as our Ruler and Rescuer. 1 Samuel is a book about ancient times, that speaks directly into ours.

Written for people of every age and stage, from new believers to pastors and teachers, 1 Samuel For You can be used to:

• READ: As a guide to this wonderful letter, exciting and equipping you to live out the truth in your life.
• FEED: As a daily devotional to help you grow in Christ as you read and meditate on this portion of God’s word.
• LEAD: As notes to aid you in explaining, illustrating and applying 1 Samuel as you preach or lead a Bible study.

There is an accompanying Good Book Guide available containing Bible studies for small groups.

Tim Chester is Director of the Porterbrook Seminary and a pastor in the Crowded House church network in Sheffield, England.

“Great study material!”

(Review written for '1 Samuel For You (ebook)')

I used this book side by side as I read through 1st Samuel. This guide pointed me to Christ throughout the pages of 1st Samuel. I would recommend to anyone looking for material to point them to Christ in this history book!

“Not a commentary, more a companion”

(Review written for '1 Samuel For You')

This slim volume takes you through 1 Samuel in sequence. It is not intended as a commentary but provides chatty and, at times, devotional comment on the biblical text. There are many wonderful insights, for example, the relationship between David and Jonathan is often portrayed as between two young warroirs - in fact, Jonathan is old enough to have been David's father, which puts a different complexion on their exchanges. The book complements the Good Book Guide to 1 Samuel by the same author, although the latter is a relatively brief look at 1 Samuel so misses out a lot of the content of I Samuel for you. 1 Samuel for you is actually a better companion for a sequential bible study of 1 Samuel as a lot of the devotional points made in the bible study guide are also made in the companion volume.
