William Barrick, Professor of Old Testament at The Master’s Theological Seminary, has recommended Paul House’s commentary on 1 & 2 Kings from the New American Commentary Series.
“Are you looking for a simple commentary on 1st and 2nd Kings that isn’t too shallow and doesn’t ignore problems? This is the commentary you have been looking for. Paul House provides lucid comments on the text of these two biblical books in their historical and cultural setting. He doesn’t stop there, however. At the conclusion of major sections of the Books of Kings, House describes the significance of the passage to the biblical canon and to pertinent subjects in Old Testament theology. Once the full meaning of the text has been presented, the author proceeds to suggest how the teachings apply to the lives of today’s Christians.”
