Item Description...
Bridging the gap between historical and present-day contexts, this new volume by August H. Konkel in the NIV Application Commentary Series helps us to accurately apply the message of 1 and 2 Kings to the lives we live today.

Publishers Description
Readers of 1 and 2 Kings commonly approach these books as a straightforward chronology of post-Davidic Israel: the inauguration of Solomon s reign, the division of the kingdom following his death, and Israel s and Judah s ensuing kings, conflicts, captivities, and overarching spiritual decline. In reality, however, the books of the Kings fall into the collection known as the Former Prophets, and their true story and underlying theme center on such striking personalities as Nathan, Elijah, Elisha, and other divinely appointed spokesmen. It is God s interaction with his people by way of his prophets and their kings---his pleadings, his warnings, and the fulfillment of his words---that comes across again and again with forcefulness and clarity. God speaks; now will his people hear, believe, and respond? The question is as relevant for us today as it was for the ancient Israelites. Bridging the centuries, August Konkel connects past context to contemporary circumstances, helping us grasp the meaning and signifance of 1 and 2 Kings and take to heart their message for us today. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable---but the job is only half done The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not helpful  Jul 23, 2007
I am a big fan of the NIV application commentaries, but this has to be one of the worst ones I have used. I recently did a series on Elijah and of all the commentaries I used on 1 & 2 Kings, this one had the least helpful and useful information, and the information it did have was very little. He made 1 Kings 17, 18 & 19 one chapter. So much goes on there, and this is one of the major stories in 1 Kings. I don't know how he was able to boil that down to a few pages.
1 & 2 Kings commentary  May 12, 2007
I found in this book some interesting and useful ideas how to illustrate episodes in books of 1 & 2 Kings. The NIV Application Commentary series has its own limits and peculiarities, because here authors deal more with ideas and less with text. This book may be useful for those who are interesting in preparation of sermons about 1 & 2 Kings, but it is less interesting for those who are looking for grammar.
A thoroughly balance presentation  Apr 7, 2007
I proofread this for Zondervan, and it is a very solid effort. Multifaceted in Hebrew, ANE, archaeological, and theological coverage. Hard to chose between this, Paul House 1, 2 Kings/an Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Holy Scripture Niv Text (New American Commentary), and Iain Provan 1 and 2 Kings (for exposition). Konkel recently completed Job for the CBC series Cornerstone Biblical Commentary: Job, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs (Cornerstone Biblical Commentary) (Tyndale), and will author the forthcoming Chronicles, BCBC (Herald).
