Dale Ralph Davis explains the text and helps to apply it to our lives
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.
Dale Ralph Davis is Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina. Prior to that he was pastor of Woodland Presbyterian Church, Hattiesburg, Mississippi and Professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi.

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
This is a superbly easy-to-read book. But the thing I liked best was the incisive application. It is not possible to read this book and feel unchallenged.
Enthusiasm for these commentaries is absolutely right. No preacher should be without them. No thoughtful Christian can fail to be excited and edified by them.
The most practical expository work that this reviewer has ever encountered.
Southwestern Journal of Theology
An excellent, crisp, lively exposition.
Bibliotheca Sacra Journal
... 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.
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
"A happy blend of exegetical and historical study on the one hand, and homiletical treatment and application on the other. Ideas pop out everywhere, even in the most unlikely places. New insights abound."
Richard A. Bodey
"presents historical and theological material in a way that can only excite the expositor."
Warren W. Wiersbe, Author and Conference Speaker
"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
As Minister of Education, I recommend this commentary to my Sunday school teachers. Since we write our own material, Davis helps provide the big picture and always draws his reader back to the majesty of God.

As with all of his books Bro. Davis combines scholarship with relevance, and sprinkles in some everyday wit to make these expository studies come alive and fit in our everyday shoes as we learn to walk with God in truth and holiness. Catch the studious writings of this man of God and your ministry will truly be enhanced.
