1 and 2 Kings for Everyone


Westminster John Knox, SPCK 2011

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This seventh volume in the popular Old Testament for Everyone series tells the story of Israel when it was a monarchy, from the accession of Solomon to the exile. In the story, the people of Israel acknowlege the ways in which they failed to follow Yahweh, their God, and ask God’s forgiveness. “There is no way they can undo those facts or compel God to forgive them and give them a new start,” John Goldingay writes. “All they can do is cast themselves on God’s mercy.” Perfect for daily devotions, Sunday school prep, or brief visits with the Bible, this commentary is an excellent resource for the modern lay reader.
