Item description for 1 Kings: The Wisdom and the Folly (Focus on the BIble) by Dale Ralph Davis...
Overview This is a book is a continuation of a narrative of the history of Israel which begins in 1st Samuel and continues through into 1st Kings and 2nd 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 humour. He is noted for tackling scholarship head on.
Publishers Description The range of scholarship is extraordinary (is there any learned book or paper on First Kings that this writer has not winkled out?), His humour 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. Rev Dick Lucas, The Proclamation Trust, London Robust that s the word a robust understanding, defence, 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 .Dr Alec Motyer this exposition enables the contemporary reader to breath the air of 1 Kings, re-live its challenges, and above all, to encounter the personally the 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, The Proclamation Trust, London

Great OT commentary for any student of the Word Mar 25, 2008
If you have never read Ralph Davis' commentaries, you are missing a real treat! He has a depth of insight and the way he applies the Scriptures is truly fantastic. His academic ability is shown, but he does not over power you with it. His OT commentaries are great for Bible study and seeing how an ancient text applies in the 21st century. If you don't own them, you need to get them today.
