"... It is all very readable, clear and not inaccessibly transatlantic. There are a subject index, a persons index, and a Bible persons index. Refreshing and recommended." - The Churchman Journal
"... The author has a clear grasp of both the text and of contemporary scholarship, yet presents a commentary which is not only readable but witty, and share in application. The commentary chapters are each little sermons, with headings ready-made. The section on Jeroboam's golden calves is entitled "Bootleg Religion" and its three headings are: The Need for False Religion, The Subtlety of False Religion, The Stupidity of False Religion. It is almost too tempting for the preacher to follow this pattern rather than preach his own sermon! But these books should not be restricted only to preachers. They are very helpful commentaries for the general reader and for devotional use." - Reformation Today
"... The joy for all who would turn to these pages is simply that they bring Old Testament history out of Israel's past and into the church's present in a most distinctive manner. They are bound to refresh, enthuse, solemnize and bless." - The Banner of Truth Magazine
"‘Robust' - that's the word ...a robust understanding, defence, explanation and application of First Kings as the Word of God. Here is no ‘First Kings in my own words' - the boring, fruitless fate of most commentaries on Bible History - but a delicious feast of truth, proof that the ancients were right to call the historians ‘prophets'." - Alec Motyer, Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer.
