Peter Leithart's typological reading of the unified book of 1 and 2 Samuel unleashes the literary power of this key Old testament narrative. By giving careful attention to the book's literary structures and its patterns of types and antitypes, the symbolic world of Samuel reveals a cumulative and cohesive story.
Leithart's reading of Samuel enhances our understanding of New testament Christology and gives us a framework for applying the Old testament to our own lives, as the book comes alive as a tragic and beautiful story of the rebirth of Israel in difficult times.
