About 1 Kings - 2nd Edition (Volume 12):
In this commentary, Dr. DeVries gives a thorough overview of the world of 1 Kings: its geography, culture, politics and the religious situation.

This second edition offers the most up-to-date scholarly research into 1 Kings and its significance for today, incorporates a new, expanded bibliography to show what others have written on the book over the past 18 years, shows how the religion of the Hebrew people took shape during their early years as a kingdom, and offers an updated and expanded bibliography.
