2 Kings: The Power and the FuryBy: Dale Ralph Davis
|Publisher||Christian Focus Publications|
The Book of Second Kings provides a fast paced narrative of insight into the history of Israel under its monarchy and it gives us a warning about the consequences of sin, especially the catastrophic repercussions of Israel's love affair with idolatry. Through the prophets such as Elisha and Elijah we see God's compassion for His people and the opportunity for repentance, but an opportunity missed by Judah climaxing in the kingdom being subjugated by the Babylonians. This commentary is illuminating, accessibly and laced with his unique sense of humour and with his practical, devotional exposition applies events to the contemporary reader providing parallels to alert us in the 21st century.
