1 & 2 Kings Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary

Smyth & Helwys Publishing, Inc / 2000 / Hardcover

Stock No: WW120650


Product Description

The Old Testament provides peculiarly powerful ways of thinking and seeing. Brueggemann considers the artistry of 1 & 2 Kings as it mediates between history and faith. He has spent many years engaged with the artistry and imagination of the Old Testament, pondering the ways of power in church and society and he makes clear that those issues of power in the ancient texts still pertain to contemporary times. The commentary proceeds text-by-text, special focus is placed upon Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, and Josiah as models of faith. Brueggemann provides a guide for the reader to maneuver between flat history and absolute faith.
This commentary uses a three-fold format for each section of the biblical text: (1) a commentary section containing critical analysis and interpretation; (2) a section that makes connections between the text and the modern reader by suggesting contemporary applications; and (3) special interest material related to the text. Also included is a CD-ROM containing all the text and images of the volume in a searchable format. The CD-ROM that contains: the full text of the commentary, visuals from the commentary, hyperlinked outline and visual thumbnails, powerful search capabilities, Adobe Acrobat Reader with Search, and the ability to add study notes to the file.

Publisher's Description

The Old Testament provides peculiarly powerful ways of thinking and seeing. Brueggemann considers the artistry of 1 & 2 Kings as it mediates between history and faith. He has spent many years engaged with the artistry and imagination of the Old Testament, pondering the ways of power in church and society and he makes clear that those issues of power in the ancient texts still pertain to contemporary times. While the book proceeds text-by-text, special focus is placed upon Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, and Josiah as models of faith. Brueggemann provides a useful guide for the reader to maneuver between flat history and absolute faith. In commentary form, 1 & 2 Kings invites the reader to view fresh ways of faithful insight and wisdom. Like all volumes in the Smyth & Helwys Commentary Series, 1 & 2 Kings provides a wealth of visual treats, from photography to classic works of art and maps. Each visual supports the commentary and enhances interpretation.
