Item description for 2 Kings: The Power and Fury (Focus on the Bible) by Dale Ralph Davis...

Overview
2nd 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 1st Samuel, and continued through 2nd Samuel and 1st Kings. Ralph finishes it off with a captivating and rewarding journey through 2nd 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about 2 Kings: The Power and Fury (Focus on the Bible)?

A Premier work for Preachers and Teachers  May 14, 2008
Dale Ralph Davis has done it again! Once more, he has given us an excellent preaching resource as he takes us through still another of the Historical Books, taking us on a verse by verse journey that is both textually astute, carefully crafted, and wonderfully practical. Davis has taught seminary courses on how to preach from the Older Testament and he fills each of his books with material that is both true to the text while at the same time being practical and "preachable." This book is a "must have" for the serious preacher and/or student of the Bible.
 
Biblical, creative, insightful  May 2, 2008
My first exposure to Dale Ralph Davis was his 1 Kings commentary, The Wisdom and the Folly. When I started preparing my preaching series on the lives of Elijah and Elisha, I read the commentary cover-to-cover, along with a bunch of other commentaries. Hands down, Davis was the most helpful. He's knowledgeable, Biblical, and creative. Creative in his presentation, and in his desire to dig in to the passages, and find what's really there, rather than just go with the hoary old received wisdom that we've all heard a million times before.

I have to say, he turned my understanding of 1 Kings 19 (Elijah at Horeb) inside out. I had studied that passage in depth in Seminary, translating it myself, writing a research paper on it, but Davis pointed out some features of the story that had me smacking my forehead - of course! That's so vital! And I'd never seen it before.

I rushed to my laptop and ordered his 2 Kings commentary, which I've now read cover to cover. It is fabulous. Davis has a way of opening up the difficult and boring passages to show why the author included them in the narrative. I've now added all of Davis' Joshua through Samuel volumes to my wish list.
