1 Samuel: Looking for a Leader (Preaching the Word) - download pdf or read online

By John Woodhouse

What type of leaders should still we stick with? what sort of leaders may still we be? And what does God need to do with it? those are a number of the questions inherent in 1 Samuel, with its portrait of divine reaction to old Israel's management predicament. That predicament used to be met via 3 men-Samuel, Saul, and David-in ways in which endlessly replaced the nature of Israel's management and clarified what God calls for of his humans and their leaders.

As John Woodhouse demonstrates, 1 Samuel's biblical context offers severe mirrored image on our want for management and the failure of human leaders. however it additionally unearths God's solution for Israel, which seems to be his solution for the entire international and for every people separately. This perceptive statement not just illumines previous testomony background yet brilliantly issues to the recent testomony promise that was once fulfilled in Jesus, our sovereign chief and Savior. Part of the Preaching the Word series.
