The call of Samuel

In the first book of Samuel we read of how Samuel became the first of a long line of prophets, sent to call the people of Israel back to their covenant with God. The spiritual state of the people was at a low ebb, not least because of the lack of leadership by the priests, and in particular Eli, who allowed his sons, also priests, to behave in an appalling manner. God called Samuel to bring the people back to hearing and obeying the Word of God.
