Holman Reference 1,2 Kings: New American Commentary [NAC] -eBook

Few biblical books are as neglected by the church as 1 & 2 Kings. There are several reasons for this situation. First, some preachers find it difficult to construct sermons from Old Testament texts. Also, misconceptions about Old Testament history exist, such as its supposedly boring and has a nontheological nature. This causes laypersons to question the books' value for devotional readings. Also commentaries on these books often explain chronological and compositional matters without exploring the books' theological and literary richness. These barriers are overcome with this commentary on 1 & 2 Kings by Paul R. House.

The New American Commentary is for those who have been seeking a commentary that honors the Scriptures, represents the finest in contemporary evangelical scholarship, and lends itself to the practical work of preaching and teaching. This series serves as a minister's friend and a student's guide.

My goal as a lay Bible teacher is to supplement my Bible study with the efforts of scholars who may help guide my understanding. I want to leave a library to benefit my children and grandchildren as they journey along the path of faith.

House, while not stressing the more critical areas relating to Kings, has written an excellent work from a theological standpoint. While he is not high in analysis, he is on application, which is one thing for which I read commentaries.
