1 & 2 Kings (Tyndale Commentaries)
Wiseman, Donald J.
The book of Kings is a unique source for understanding the history of Israel from the last days of the united kingdom under David to the eventual fall of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Presenting Israel’s history from a divine viewpoint, these narratives measure the kings of Israel and Judah by their ‘doing what is right in the Lord’s sight,’ and offer enduring lessons of the ways of God with his people in every age. Donald Wiseman's commentary reflects his lifelong study of the ancient Near East, and provides much historical background in a concise and accessible form.
