Publisher's Description

1 Kings is a continuation of a narrative of the history of Israel which begins in 1 Samuel and continues through into 1 & 2 Kings. While we so often struggle with the events and issues of the book of 1st Kings, Ralph Davis helps us to see how it we can apply to the contemporary settings of the 21st century. As usual Ralph Davis uses pastoral application and laces it with his own sense of humor. He is noted for tackling scholarship head on.

“...this exposition enables the contemporary reader to breath the air of 1 Kings, re-live its challenges, and above all, to encounter the personal 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, Proclamation Trust, London

“‘Robust’—that's the word ...a robust understanding, defense, 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

“The range of scholarship is extraordinary (is there any learned book or paper on First Kings that this writer has not winkled out?), His humor 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 Helens Bishopsgate, London

“One of the reasons I enjoy Davis's exposition so much is that I feel confident that he has done his exegetical homework, and so is not just delivering blessed, unhistorical thoughts on the text. Yet at the same time, he applies the text so well.”
- Simon Gathercole
