Item Description...
Overview
The narratives of Solomon and Jeroboam, of Elijah and Ahab, have fascinated readers for millennia. They are the principal foundation of our knowledge of the history of Israel during the early years of the divided monarchy, and their reliability and verifiability as historical sources have long been the subject of intense scholarly analysis and debate. But even apart from questions of historical authenticity, they are gripping stories of richly drawn characters caught up in the complex tale of Yahweh's dealings with Israel: Solomon the wise is the builder of Yahweh's Temple, yet he becomes an idolater; Jeroboam is chosen by Yahweh as king, yet he worships the golden calves; Elijah is a prophet second only to Moses, yet he tries to renounce his calling; and Ahab is the worst of Israel's kings, yet shows traces of greatness. This study explores the narrative world created by the ancient Israelite author - the people who inhabit it, the lives they live and the deeds they do, and the face of God who is revealed in their stories.

Publishers Description

The narratives of Solomon and Jeroboam, of Elijah and Ahab, have fascinated readers for millennia. Even apart from questions of historical authenticity, they are gripping stories of richly drawn characters caught up in the complex tale of God's dealings with Israel. This study explores the narrative world created by 1 Kings' ancient Israelite author: the people who inhabit it, the lives they live, the deeds they do, and the face of God who is revealed in their stories.

An introduction explains the significance of 1 Kings as a historical narrative. Originally intended as a literal history, after centuries of writing and rewriting it is now as much a literary work as a historical one: The views of those who formed it can be discerned and studied. Walsh also explains how the rich traditions of Hebrew prose narrative and the Hebrew language itself affect our reading of 1 Kings.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
scholarly work of art  Feb 21, 2000
In trying to find a solid commentary on 1 Kings that delves into the intricacies and the theology of the text, one is hard-pressed to find a work that rivals Walsh's fine contribution. Walsh develops the narrative artwork of the text of 1 Kings, showing subtle nuances and insights into the Hebrew, while maintaining a very readable and engaging style. As an evangelical pastor who holds to a high view of the Scriptures, this commentary was extremely helpful. While Walsh and I would most likely disagree on the level of redacting, the process that led to the present text, and the authoritative nature of the book, he is very concerned with the final form of 1 Kings and concentrates on using the tools of narrative and literary criticism. This is an outstanding reference work for anyone who teaches or preaches from 1 Kings and in my mind is the best commentary on 1 Kings available, period!
