    Book details

This commentary, like each in the series, is designed to serve readers by demonstrating the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible. Figures of the classical church such as Augustine, Calvin, Luther, and Wesley interpreted the Bible theologically, believing Scripture as a whole witnessed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Modern interpreters of the Bible questioned this premise. But, in recent decades, a critical mass of theologians and biblical scholars has begun to reassert the priority of a theological reading of Scripture.

"Leithart's theological conclusions about the book of Kings are diverse and interesting. He demonstrates a breadth of reading and knowledge of theological matters and brings that knowledge to bear upon the book of Kings. . . . For the biblical scholar, this volume is a fitting reminder that the text should be read holistically and theologically. . . . For the pastor, Leithart's commentary provides a succinct summary of each chapter or section that is most helpful in preaching through the book. For the theologian, Leithart shows how even the book of Kings makes weighty theological statements based upon a text-imminent, Christian reading of the book. Moreover, for all, it is a delightful read."--Randall L. McKinion, Review of Biblical Literature

Review Text

  • By Brian Trudgian on 23 February 2009

    This book in the Bravos Series, continues the high standard of others, such as Pelikan's Commentary on Acts.It comes from an unashamedly faith tradition, and the text is illuminated because of it. Despite the author's disclaimer that he is not sure how to deal with the Elijah/Elisha cycle, I found his handling of these passagessurefooted.A welcome addition to any library.Brian Trudgian
