In this commentary, Walter Brueggemann considers the artistry of 1 & 2 Kings as it mediates between history and faith. He develops a theme around how the Old Testament provides peculiarly powerful ways of thinking and seeing God’s reality. He also points to issues of power in ancient texts that is still prevalent today. In this narrative treatment of the text, a special focus is placed upon Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, and Josiah as models of faith. Brueggemann provides a useful guide for the reader to maneuver between flat history and the dynamism of faith. Like all volumes in the Smyth & Helwys Commentary Series, 1 & 2 Kings provides a wealth of visuals, including photography, classic works of art, and maps. These provide a depth of explanation that support the task of interpretation.
