Good kings and bad kings, good faith and bad faith – these are the themes of 1 and 2 Kings. Here, we begin with the wealth-drenched rule of wise King Solomon and end with the consequences of his successors’ folly. Again and again, these rulers expose Israel and Judah to judgement by failing to reflect God’s holiness and to ensure that he alone is worshipped. Yet God, ever loving, raises up those who are good from among David’s descendants, and sends prophets to proclaim the benefits of faithfulness to God and warn of the dire consequences that unfaithfulness will bring.

Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament. And, as he guides us in our understanding of these time-honoured words and the ancient world they describe, he helps us to apply what we read to our lives.
