2 Kings - the Power and the Fury (Focus On The Bible Commentary Series)

Dale Ralph Davis

$17.99

Paperback

The Second Book of Kings provides a fast-paced narrative relating the parallel histories of Israel and Judah under their respective royal dynasties, separated since the death of Solomon. It continues the epic story of the House of David begun in 1 and 2 Samuel, and continued through 1 Kings. Written between 561 BC and 538BC, 2 Kings warns us 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 humour, Davis' practical devotional expository applies events to the contemporary reader providing parallels to alert us in the 21st century.
