The Message of Kings
Full Product Description
How can this story of reversal, told by the very people who suffered that defeat, be of value today, and equip us ?for every good work??
John Olley shows how the books of Kings retell the past as ?preached history?, addressing the exilic situation of the original readers. This in turn helps as we ask how they speak to us today. Within the account of paths leading to short-term 'success' but ultimate failure, there are pointers of hope, of God?s continuing purposes and promises, and of the people?s response in the present.
In rich and often surprising ways, the narrative in Kings is part of the history that has shaped, and is to continue to shape, the faith and life of Christian believers. Everyday life, along with the turmoil of national and global events, is the arena in which God?s people are called to worship, trust and obey him, and it is on aspects of this life that 1 & 2 Kings can throw light.
The Message of Kings by John W Olley was published by IVP in November 2011 and is our 14431st best seller. The ISBN for The Message of Kings is 9781844745500.
