Bishop Robert Barron offers a theological exegesis of 2 Samuel in this paperback book.

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible encourages readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition should inform and shape faithfulness today. Here, Bishop Barron highlights three major themes: God's non-competitive transcendence, the play between divine and non-divine causality, and the role of Old Testament kingship. As with other volumes in the series, this book is ideal for those called to ministry, serving as a rich resource for Catholic preachers, teachers, students, and study groups.

"Fr. Robert Barron is a great teacher of the Church and a gifted biblical commentator who breaks open the Word of God for our day as Ambrose and Augustine did for theirs."

- George Weigel,
Distinguished senior fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center

"In this book, Fr. Barron brings his theological erudition to the task of interpreting sacred scripture. The result will be a delight for all his readers. Not only will they relish the many profundities of the text, but they will be able to join the author in wrestling with its various conundrums. Even the challenging parts of David's life are handled in fresh, creative, and--most important--productive ways."

- Gary Anderson,
Hesburgh Professor of Catholic Theology, University of Notre Dame

"Fr. Robert Barron is one of the clearest and most compelling Christian communicators I know. He is a scholar, yet he relates easily to all the faithful. As a preacher he reaches both mind and heart. Now, in this major biblical commentary, he has given us a book that measures up to the standard already established by this excellent series. The story of 2 Samuel 'lives and breathes' in Barron's words."

- John H. Armstrong,
President, ACT3 Network, Carol Stream, Illinois
