Item description for First and Second Kings (WBC) (Westminster Bible Companion) by Terence E. Fretheim & Fretheim...
Overview By focusing his attention upon the plot of 1 and 2 Kings, Fretheim does not allow ancient history to obscure a timely, prophetic message. He convincingly shows that 1 and 2 Kings were far more concerned with real life issues than with chronicling the historical accomplishments of various monarchs.
Old Testament scholar Terence Fretheim identifies the theology in the dramatic accounts of the books of Kings, which chronicles the reigns of more than forty kings over a period of nearly four hundred years. Interspersing theological reflections throughout, Fretheim trace's God's words of judgement and promise for Israel--and for us--accross the entirety of Kings.
