Summary: The Book of 1 Kings is a portion of the true history of Israel's monarchy composed for the sake of theology. The focus on the kingship is supplemented by mention of prophets who interacted with the monarchs, but the main subject of this elegant literature is God. This history presents God--the holy, righteous, just, merciful, compassionate, gracious, omnipotent, and omniscient Deity--in relationship with Israel, from the tenth to the sixth centuries BC, anticipating the Son of David and Solomon, Jesus Christ. This record of Israel's kingship always returns to the basis of that history--that God's people depend on Him for life and salvation --Summary: This volume continues Dr. Maier's exposition of the text of 1-2 Kings, which is a history, written in a selective manner, for the sake of theology. This history of Israel covers over three hundred and eighty years by focusing primarily on one aspect: that of the monarchy, from the last part of David's rule to the end of the kingship in Judah with an added note concerning the exiled Judean king. 1 Kings 12-22 covers the period from the division of the monarchy after the death of Solomon up to the reign of Ahaziah. Along with its attention to the kings of Israel, this history also emphasizes prophets, who were contemporaries of these rulers and who interacted with them. The purpose of 1-2 Kings is not only to record for posterity certain events which actually took place, but also to convey theology. In particular, this history presents God--the holy, righteous, just, merciful, compassionate, gracious, omnipotent, and omniscient Deity--in relationship with Israel (from the tenth to the sixth centuries BC). --
