The Interpreter's Bible Commentary is a modern treatment of the scriptures designed to help preachers better communicate the Bible. This volume on 1 and 2 Kings by Richard Nelson begins with an introductory section which discusses the structure of the book especially as it relates to early Hebrew narrative, the theology of Kings and the audience for which it was intended. The commentary is an analysis of the text and a practical help for sermon preparation.
Richard Nelson examines the books of Kings and treats the text as theological literature, emphasizing the literary impact of this important part of the Old Testament canon. Nelson recognizes King's as a useful though uncritical source of historical information, its purpose to transform the beliefs of its first readers, to get them to re-evaluate their identity before God.
Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.
Richard D. Nelson is Associate Dean for Academic Affairsand W. J. A. Power Professor of Biblical Hebrew and Old Testament Interpretation at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, Texas. He is also an ordained pastor with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
