1 Kings begins with the last days of David, continues with the glorious days of Solomon's reign but then disobedience and decline resulting in a divided kingdom and idolatry. Elijah and Elisha confront the evil perpetrated by the kings and they point people to the one true God.
This useful resource, alongside the others in this growing 'Teaching the Bible Series', is for those who have the privilege and joy of teaching or preaching a particular book or theme from the Bible. Whether you're a leader of a small group, preacher or a youth worker, it will help you to communicate the message from 1 Kings whether it is a word for believers or the opportunity to teach evangelistically.

As in his other writings, so in this current study on 1 Kings, Robert Fyall shows himself to be a reliable guide for those exploring the Old Testament. Through a combination of helps, including explanatory comment and probing questions, he enables the reader to engage with the text of Kings, including passages that seem rather dull and mundane. The aim throughout is to provide the tools for the Christian preacher to teach and apply this part of the Word of God to a contemporary congregation; ultimately to proclaim Christ in a responsible manner.

Reading Bob Fyall's Teaching 1 Kings is like walking into a hermeneutical candy store! He is a master at condensing the flow of a narrative, all the while keeping his finger on the jugular vein of the text. He is guilty of biblical over-stimulation. If you're planning on preaching First Kings (or preaching in it), get this book; if you're not planning to preach First Kings, get this book and you'll want to preach First Kings.

Dale Ralph Davis, Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
