The events of 1 Samuel bridge two major eras in the story of Israel. This book witnesses the close of the period of judges and the opening of the age of kings.
As you stroll through 1 Samuel, you'll grow to know the characters of Samuel, Saul, and David. Their stories contribute powerfully to Israel's vivid history. Even more important, you'll ponder God's faithfulness and his care for his people. God shaped and sustained Israel so that one day it could become a light to all others through the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.
