Editorial Reviews

Review

‘Robust - that's the word ...a robust understanding, defence, explanation and application of First Kings as the Word of God. Here is no "First Kings in my own words" - the boring, fruitless fate of most commentaries on Bible History - but a delicious feast of truth, proof that the ancients were right to call the historians "prophets".'

-- Alec Motyer ((1924–2016) Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer)

‘...this exposition enables the contemporary reader to breathe the air of 1 Kings, re-live its challenges, and above all, to encounter the personally the God who speaks and acts throughout its pages. This is a book to unsettle spiritual complacency and challenge us to a deep integrity in our relationship with the living God.'

-- David Jackman (Past President, The Proclamation Trust, London)

‘The range of scholarship is extraordinary (is there any learned book or paper on First Kings that this writer has not winkled out?), His humour and humanity, plus a priceless American-style turn of phrase, add relish to the dish. Here is a safe and strong pair of hands to guide new, and older, readers through the treasure - and the uninspiring bits - of First Kings.'

-- Dick Lucas (Formerly Rector of St Helen's Bishopsgate, London)
