Description

This volume provides a readable introduction to the narrative books of 1 and 2 Kings appropriate for the student, pastor, and scholar. Fritz combines historical, literary, and archaeological approaches in an engaging synthesis. While he addresses issues of the deuteronomic redaction, the author does not become bogged down in technical discussions or allow this to overshadow the holistic interpretation of the text.

Endorsements

"Fritz's commentary is a fine addition to the Continental Commentaries series. It combines an appropriate mix of historical, archaeological, geographical, and literary critical analysis. I think it is a fine work for both students and scholars. In my view, it is superior to other recent volumes on Kings."
— Marvin A. Sweeney, Claremont School of Theology
