Product Description

The book of Kings is a unique source for understanding the history of Israel from the last days of the united kingdom under David to the eventual fall of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Presenting Israel's national history from a divine viewpoint, these narratives measure the kings of Israel and Judah not by the mark they leave on secular history, but by their "doing what is right in the Lord's sight." Embedded in this story are enduring lessons of the ways of God with his people in every age.

In this commentary Donald Wiseman brings to this portion of Scripture his lifelong study of the archaeology, history, languages and documents of the ancient Near East. No other commentary on Kings offers as much historical background and well-considered judgment in such concise and accessible form.

The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

    Good in some ways; overall a great choice, though

    I'm finding there is a lack of good commentaries on 1st & 2nd Kings from an evangelical standpoint. Thus, this commentary, although deficient in some passages, is on the whole one of the only good choices. I would recommend it for that reason alone.

    I have been very pleased with the quality and content of each of the Tyndale Old and New Testament Commentaries. I have found them to be a great resource to assist my preparation for teaching Sunday School.

    Wiseman is a highly respected conservative scholar, author, and editor. His work on 1&2 Kings is the best thing available for discussions of archaeological evidence and the historical reliability of these two OT books. This is especially needed on the books of Kings as their reliability has often been questioned. Wiseman's theological comments are not quite as strong, but are still helpful.
