1 and 2 Kings - Albert McShane
Any commentary on these books has to face the daunting task of considering history, chronology and archaeology, as well as theology. In the pages of this volume the priorities of the author lies in presenting spiritual truth. At frequent intervals throughout, Albert McShane pauses to note how the principles, which emerge from a consideration of the inspired record of the ancient history of the kingdom of Israel, have a practical bearing upon Christian living in the present time. This feature alone, which is not commonly found in expositions of 1 and 2 Kings, will give this volume a special place on the book shelf of the Christian reader.
