1 & 2 Kings, the second volume in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible, is the first Old testament commentary in the series. This commentary, like each in the series, is designed to serve the church—through aid in preaching, teaching, study groups, and so forth—and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
The general editor for the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible is R. R. Reno (Creighton University). Series editors include Robert W. Jenson (Center of Theological Inquiry); Robert Louis Wilken (University of Virginia); Ephraim Radner (Ascension Episcopal Church in Pueblo, Colorado); Michael Root (Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary); and George Sumner (Wycliffe College in Toronto).
"The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible makes a most welcome contribution to the church, the academic world, and the general public at large. By enlisting a wide range of Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox theologians who differ on much, but who agree on the truth of the Nicene Creed, the series also represents ecumenical activity of the very best kind. It is always a daunting challenge to expound the church's sacred book both simply and deeply, but this impressive line-up of authors is very well situated for the attempt."
—Mark A. Noll, University of Notre Dame
