I want to expose you to a set of excellent commentaries you might be unfamiliar with, as I was until recently. I stumbled upon the 2 Samuel Commentary of Dale Ralph Davis earlier this year just before I started preaching 2 Samuel. Dale Ralph Davis is the pastor of Woodland Presbyterian Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. After reading most of 2 Samuel from Davis, he has become one of my favorite commentary writers and has a tremendous gift to capture the point of the text with clarity and precision. One more thing that has made me love this series. He is incredibly winsome and funny throughout. Several times I have been amazed at how much I find myself just enjoying reading his work. It is informative about the text, but is also a fun read (never thought I’d say that about a commentary). You would be helped to get any of his commentaries or other writings. Here are the different books of the Bible Davis has written on and I strongly commend them to you for either sermon prep or simple interaction with the text. Just click on the book of the Bible and it will take you to a good price for it.
