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 colour 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:
Whoever you are, and however you use it, this is… 1 Samuel For You

1 Samuel is the story of battles and murders, schemes and betrayals, and shepherds and giants. It is also the history of what happened when God gave his people the king they wanted, and then gave his people the king they needed. And through it all, it paints a wonderful picture of the ultimate King God has chosen for his people, his Son Jesus.
With his trademark insight and clarity, Tim Chester unpacks this part of the Old Testament for small groups, enabling them to appreciate Jesus’ rule for his people, and to see how to live as his subjects today.
2 Samuel is a story of triumph and disaster, both personal and national. It is the account of the rise and fall and rise of a great king, David of Israel. But it is also the story of the God who rules his people, who forgives his people, and who promises to send the King whose greatest fall will bring our eternal rise.
This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike.

2 Samuel is the story of the rise, fall, and rise of King David, Israel's greatest King. It is also the story of the rule, forgiveness and promise of Israel's God. And as we look at David, we see shadows of Israel's greatest King—his descendant, Christ Jesus.
These six studies will bring this part of the Old Testament alive for small groups, showing them the joy of living under the loving rule of the ultimate Shepherd King.
