Any commentator on these books has to meet the daunting challenge of history, chronology, and archeology, as well as theology. It is practically impossible in a single work to treat all of these areas exhaustively, so that an author has to be selective. In the pages of this volume the reader will notice that while the historical story line of 1 and 2 Kings has been carefully followed, adequate but less space has been given to matters of chronology and archaeology. Detail on such matters can be found in works which specialize in those areas.
Here the author's priorities lie elsewhere. At frequent intervals in these pages, McShane pauses to note how the principles, which emerge from a consideration of the inspired record of the ancient history of the kingdom of Israel, have a practical bearing upon Christian living in the present time. In line with his previous work on the books of Samuel, the author demonstrates how principles of assembly rule are likewise illustrated by the material of the Kings. This feature alone, which is not commonly found in expositions of 1 and 2 Kings, will give this volume a special place on the book shelf of the Old Testament student.

Albert McShane was born in Kilmore near Lurgan, Northern Ireland in 1914 and was saved early in life. Giving himself to the work of the Lord in 1944, he was a faithful and solemn gospel preacher who carried a burden for souls and saw many saved. He was also a most able expositor, having an immense and practical knowledge of the Scriptures. His ministry of the Word of God was much appreciated throughout the United Kingdom as well as further afield. For over 50 years he conducted Bible readings to great profit in Lurgan. Many have benefited also by his helpful writings in books and magazines. The Lord called him home in May 2002.
