OTT: The Theology of the Book of Kings

1 and 2 Kings unfolds an epic narrative that concludes the long story of
Israel's experience with institutional monarchy, a sequence of events that
begins with the accession of Solomon and the establishment of the Jerusalem
temple, moves through the partition into north and south, and leads inexorably
toward the nation's destruction and the passage to exile in Babylon. Keith
Bodner's The Theology of the Book of Kings provides a reading of the narrative
attentive to its literary sophistication and theological subtleties, as the
cast of characters - from the royal courts to the rural fields - are variously
challenged to resist the tempting pathway of political and spiritual
accommodations and instead maintain allegiance to their covenant with God.
In dialogue with a range of contemporary interpreters, this study is a
preliminary exploration of some theological questions that arise from the Kings
narrative, while inviting contemporary communities of faith into deeper
engagement with this enduring account of divine reliability amidst human
scheming and rapaciousness.1 and 2 Kings unfolds an epic narrative that
