“This is the finest Old Testament commentary ever to come from Australia. Normally I handle biblical commentaries like a telephone directory: I consult them as I need information. But Antony Campell’s commentary on 1 Samuel is such a pleasure to read that I devoured it like a novel. Despite all that has been written recently about Samuel and David, Campbell’s book ? a new highlight in the FOTL series ? contains much about both of them that is new. “
Antony F Campbell, SJ, is professor of Old Testament at Jesuit Theological College, Parkville, Australia. His other books include Joshua to Chronicles: An Introduction and God First Loved Us: The Challenge of Accepting Unconditional Love.“
