Summary:
The author illustrates well the character of Israelite history-writing. Much of the narrative in the books of Samuel reads like the account of someone who stands close to events he describes.

Abstract:

The author illustrates well the character of Israelite history-writing. Much of the narrative in the books of Samuel reads like the account of someone who stands close to events he describes. But at the same time, through the way in which he presents this material, the final compiler draws attention to a basic theological interest. God's overruling activity in accomplishing the ultimate purposes of his Kingdom. All the varied elements and episodes serve only as the backdrop to this which is in reality the main theme of the book. The author makes it abundantly clear that his study is basically a theological work, and as such it is supremely rewarding to the Bible student.
