1 Kings: Reformed Expository Commentary

The newest addition to the Reformed Expository Commentary series has arrived! 1 Kings marks the sixteenth volume in the set and is the fifth volume to cover a New Testament text.

“Sadly for many North American Christians, the Old Testament is a dead book, often treated merely as a foil against which to interpret the New Testament. Phil Ryken’s work goes much, much farther. This volume is a model of exposition, combining thorough and responsible exegesis with a passion to communicate the life-giving power of Old Testament Scriptures for the church.

Daniel I. Block, Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
