Description

Good kings and bad kings, good faith and bad faith – these are the themes of 1 and 2 Kings, from the wise King Solomon to the consequences of his successors’ folly. We read of how Solomon’s kingdom – so hard won by his father David – is divided, and of how the fates of northern Israel and southern Judah are wedded to the goodness or wickedness of their kings.

Using personal anecdote, a lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament

John Goldingay is Professor of OT in the School of Theology at the Fuller Theological Seminary, USA. Previously principal and professor of OT and Hebrew at St John’s Theological College Nottingham.
