Like the other volumes of the Cambridge Bible Commentary, this contains an introduction followed by the text of the New English Bible divided into sections. Each section of the text is followed by the commentary upon it. The Second Book of Samuel tells how David took over full control of both the northern and southern Hebrew kingdoms and consolidated his power throughout the region. Professor Ackroyd's commentary concentrates on interpretation rather than historical reconstruction, and part of his introduction dealing with the theological significance of the Books of Samuel relates the religious tradition stemming from the Bible to present-day ways of thinking.

Author Bio
Peter R. Ackroyd
Peter Ackroyd grew up in a council house near London's Wormwood Scrubs. After beginning his education at St Benedict's, a Catholic state school where he began studying Latin and Greek at age 11, Peter Ackroyd was educated at Cambridge and Yale universities. At Yale, where he was a Mellon Fellow, he wrote a history of modern aesthetics that was published in 1976 as NOTES FOR A NEW CULTURE. Since then, he has written novels, biographies, poems, and a book on transvestitism. He has also worked as an editor, film critic, and book reviewer. In his fiction, he eschews literary realism, believing it to be an outmoded idea. One of his perennial interests as a writer is the continuity of place in people's lives--in his case, almost always London's East End. Ackroyd is a self-professed workaholic, publishing a book a year between 1994, when his longtime lover, Brian Kuhn, died of AIDS, and 2000, when, upon completion of his book LONDON (a "biography" of the city), Ackroyd suffered a massive heart attack, from which he recovered fully.
