Product Description

This volume provides a readable introduction to the narrative books of 1 and 2 Kings appropriate for the student, pastor, and scholar. Fritz combines historical, literary, and archaeological approaches in an engaging synthesis. While he addresses issues of the deuteronomic redaction, the author does not become bogged down in technical discussions or allow this to overshadow the holistic interpretation of the text.

    Volkmar Fritz was a well known scholar in the Biblical world (An Introduction to Biblical Archaeology(1996); The Emergence of Israel in the Twelfth and Eleventh Centuries BCE(2011); Das Buch Josua(1994); Die Stadt im Alten Israel(1990)), and very important in his own right. This commentary on 1 and 2 Kings represents a lifetime of study and should not be ignored by the wide public because of his strong credentials.

    In this commentary Fritz's fluid writing translates well into a very readable and approachable invitation to understanding a very enigmatic text.

    1 and 2 Kings have long been a battleground for scholars to debate and fight over. They are an essential part of what is commonly called the Deuteronomistic History, and represent the history of close to beginning of the regnal period of Israel, beginning with the accession of Solomon to the throne. This means that the building of the temple and everything that is so central to the Deuteronomic Code is found here in these books.

    Fritz's authoritative translation and handling of the commentary are very much enjoyed, and this really should not be passed up by anyone interested in Biblical studies. This commentary is well worth the price you'll pay here on Christian Book, but even if they charge full price it is still worth it. The Continental Commentary has done a great job in adding this title to the list in the series.

    With the credentials of Volkmar Fritz online as an archeologist I was hoping for a more in-depth commentary. It was worth the $7.99 special but if one is paying full price I would recommend the NIV Application Commentary. It covers much more and reads as easily as this one.
