Kerux Commentaries | 1&2 Kings

Today I have bible commentary from a new (to me) commentary series that I received for review from Kregel. It is a single volume over First and Second Kings at ~315 page. This volume has David B Schreiner as Exegetical Author and Lee Compson as Homiletical Author.

The Kerux Commentary series is designed to help pastors and teachers properly understand and teach/preach the main message from biblical passages. A few unique features about this commentary are how it is divided between exegetical analysis, theological focus, and teaching strategy, preaching pointers, contemporary connections, etc instead of being just verse by verse like so many commentary series (and study bibles). While it is created for pastors and teachers, lay people who enjoy a deep study of the Word will greatly benefit from it as well! There is some Hebrew without any romanization, so that part is a little academic, but the rest is super easy to understand.

I really enjoy the layout and design of the interior because it reminds me of a textbook. It has double columns and pictures of Christian paintings! Pictures are always a bonus! There are also discussion questions at the end of each section, which is a really neat feature to see.

This series has many other commentaries I want to check out in the future over Psalms, Jeremiah and Lamentations, Zephaniah-Malachi, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon, and Hebrew (the one I most want!). What a great study, teaching, and preaching resource. Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy for review.
