2 Kings provides a fastpaced narrative of insight into the history of Israel under its monarchy. This book is a continuation of the narrative begun in 1 Samuel, and continued through 2 Samuel and 1 Kings. Ralph finishes it off with a captivating and rewarding journey through 2 Kings.
Written between 561 BC and 538 BC, 2nd Kings gives us a warning about the consequences of sin, especially the catastrophic repercussions of Israels love affair with idolatry.
Through prophets such as Elisha and Elijah we see Gods 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.
Today there is a renewed emphasis on the preaching of OT narrative in evangelical circles... The six volumes of Ralph Dale Davis of which 2 Kings: The power and Fury is the culmination are excellent guides for contemporary expositor as he preaches from the "former prophets". Davis has laid an excellent foundation; may many expositors build upon his work as they preach OT narrative.
Davis is a helpful guide, not least because he explains the issues with the needs of contemporary Christians in mind.
