Brief Description

Sessions with Samuel is a ten-session study unit designed to provide a compelling look at the books of 1 & 2 Samuel. Each session is followed with a thought-provoking page of questions that allow for a deeper experience of the scriptural passages. These resource pages can be used by class leaders during preparation and group discussion, as well as in individual Bible study.

Tony Cartledge takes readers on a journey through these important segments of Israel’s history. In these stories, Israel faces one crisis after another, a people constantly on the edge. Individuals like Saul and David find themselves on the edge as well, facing troubles of leadership and personal struggle. Yet, each crisis becomes a gateway for learning that God is always present, that hope remains.
