"The Reformed Expository Commentary series from P & R is a gift to the Church in this generation. In his commentary on 1 Samuel, The Reverend Rick Phillips provides a Scripturally faithful, satisfyingly readable, and spiritually challenging series of expositions which will, through the presence of the Spirit in this messages, bring increased strength to the soul of the believer and deeper insights for the study of the pastor. Pastor Phillips has obviously been like a diver, going deep down, in his study of the Word of God in 1 Samuel, to uncover the pearls of heaven in these chapters. His work will bless the Church as those pearls adorn the reader. As Samuel wrote in 1 Samuel 30:6, 'But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God' and that shepherd-king found courage in the midst of his challenges through his refuge in God, so, too, desperate disciples in these days will find power from on high in these pages. I commend Rick Phillips work without hesitation and believe that those who will take a season to study this work will be strengthened in the Lord our God"--Publisher description.
