Format: Paperback
This is an attractively produced and easy to read book in a series which attempts for the Old Testament what Tom Wright's For Everyone .... series achieved for the New Testament. Unfortunately this book does not contain the full text of 1 and 2 Kings and requires readers to get out their bible and read the (sometimes substantial) sections omitted. This partly defeats the object since the book contains its own new, lively translation and it is jarring to have make the stylistic shift to a different translation to fill in the omissions. There are plenty of contemporary references in the text to bring it alive but it is light on theology and difficult questions are often avoided or, more frustratingly, raised with no pointer towards an answer. If this series is to be really useful it must be hoped that the publisher will reconsider its decision not to include the full scriptural text.

Great for the average reader. 19 Jan. 2012
By J. Morford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just to give you a few of my credentials, which are not many. I have a Bachelor's Degree in ministries. I am almost finished with my master's degree in theology at Liberty University. I have been involved in the ministry for many years. I also own many complete series of commentaries. If there is a series I try to own it in book form, including "Adam Clarke Commentary," "Beacon Bible Commentary," "The Daily Study Bible Series," and others.

The book is very conversational and really easy to read. Matter-of-fact, almost too easy. A young child could read this and understand it for the most part. It gives many down-to-earth illustrations that are up to date. To really grasp my meaning it would be beneficial to read as long of a section before buying. This will really illuminate what I am trying to tell you. The only downfall is there it does seem to stray away from theology and the harder issues. The major strength, due to the readability, would have to be the ability for the reader to grasp the basics of what the scripture means, for the most part. These books are almost perfect for "the average Joe" and for those people I would probably rate it a 4 to 4.5 star rating. The lower rating is because of the lack of theology and avoidance of the hard issues. This book would be a great resource for the average Joe who wants to delve more into the scriptures, Sunday School teachers, laymen and women, or anyone without a theology degree.

For the theologian, that wants to really delve more into the scriptures and study word meanings, theology, or anything in depth, this is probably not the book or books for you. There are some great illustrations that one might be able to use at the pulpit, though. For the pastor, or anyone who has went to seminary, this is probably not the set of books that you want to invest the money to buy. However, it would not be bad if you get asked a lot of times to let someone borrow a book this might be good to purchase for that purpose. If you fall into this category I would have to give this a rating of about 1.5 of 5 stars.
