Editorial Reviews

Logos Bible Study presents Dr. Bill Creasy's lesson on the first book of Kings. Detailing the fall of David and the proceeding chaos, Dr. Creasy makes this complex history that spans centuries both funny and smart with modern analogies and comprehensive historical context. The audio lecture illuminates important concepts including kingships and covenants as well as the symbol of Solomon's temple and Israel's religious infidelity. With a background in teaching and English literature, Dr. Creasy's performance reveals his expert timing, both comic and dramatic. His lesson tells a fascinating story of events long ago that remain very much relevant today.

Publisher's Summary

From Solomon’s reign to the prophetic call of Elijah, 1 Kings tells the story of the collapse of David’s united monarchy into a nearly 100-year civil war and the fracture of a nation into two kingdoms: Israel and Judah. Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy journeys deeply into the historical and cultural nuances that underlie this amazing and compelling story.

Slightly distracted

While Dr. Creasy was on his usual informative and scholarly game, in the early chapters on Solomon he tended to get distracted and kept jumping ahead to Solomon's son, Rehoboam. The loss of continuity is the reason for the loss of one star. But once past that early point, the rest of the book is excellently presented - especially the gleeful depiction of Jezebel's (literal) downfall.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series of lectures!

This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
