Listen to a sermon by Dale Ralph Davis from 2 Kings 2:1-25 entitled The Kingdom of God in Transition. (Aisquith Presbyterian Church)

Publisher's Description

2 Kings provides a fast-paced narrative of insight into the history of Israel under its monarchy. This book is a continuation of the narrative begun in 1 Samuel, and continued through 2 Samuel and 1 Kings. Ralph finishes it off with a captivating and rewarding journey through 2 Kings.

Written between 561 BC and 538BC, 2nd Kings gives us a warning about the consequences of sin, especially the catastrophic repercussions of Israel's love affair with idolatry. Despite struggling with other problems, we see that the Jewish people learned from their experience. They never made a mistake of this enormity again.

Through prophets such as Elisha and Elijah we see God's compassion for his people and the opportunity for repentance. An opportunity spoilt by Judah, climaxing with the subjugation of the kingdom by the Babylonians.

Illuminating, accessible and laced with his unique sense of humor, Davis' practical devotional expository applies events to the contemporary reader providing parallels to alert us in the 21st century.

“Davis is a helpful guide, not least because he explains the issues with the needs of contemporary Christians in mind.”
The Churchman, Matthew Mason

“Today there is a renewed emphasis on the preaching of OT narrative in evangelical circles... The six volumes of Ralph Dale Davis of which 2 Kings: The power and Fury is the culmination are excellent guides for contemporary expositor as he preaches from the "former prophets." Davis has laid an excellent foundation; may many expositors build upon his work as they preach OT narrative.”
Keith Essex, Associate Professor of Bible Exposition, The Master's Seminary, Sun Valley, California
