Kings of Israel (3 Units)
This practical study provides a comprehensive history of the kings of Israel as recorded in the books of the Kings and Chronicles. Although these historic accounts differ in presentation and style, they communicate God’s work and ever-present guidance throughout Israel’s history.
In Kings of Israel, C. Knapp not only presents a detailed analysis of contextual differences between the books but also enables readers to discover how each account works together to present the complete picture that God intended.
From Jeroboam to Ahab to Zachariah, the illustrative lessons of Israel’s kings continue to teach precious truths and principles that guide us today in living a more fulfilled and meaningful Christian life.
Christopher Knapp (1870-1945) was a devoted student of God’s Word. During his early years of ministry, Knapp went to the Bahamas as an evangelist, where he enjoyed a fruitful ministry. Later, Knapp and his wife went to Honduras, Central America, as pioneer missionaries. For five years they sowed the seed of the Gospel, often taking long and arduous journeys into the interior. After contracting malaria, Knapp returned to the States and continued to minister the Word. He continued an effective written ministry almost to the end of his life.
Here’s What People Are Saying!
“We are delighted to see this excellent volume back in print again, and we feel that all lovers of the O.T. historical books will share this feeling when they explore it.
This area of Jewish monarchical history seems to be little trodden by preachers and teachers. Perhaps the reason behind this is the dim feeling that the way is somewhat obscure, and expository literature thereon scarce. If this has been the attitude, then it need obtain no longer, for Mr Knapp’s cogent presentation, along with a helpful introduction by the late Dr. H.A. Ironside, is most informative and spiritual. While most certainly scholarship is not lacking, the author ever seeks to speak to the heart and conscience, pressing the practical lessons upon his readers.
The contemporary prophets and their messages are given their place, and a helpful chronological table is provided.
This laudable volume is a must for every lover of expository and edifying Biblical literature.”
