A Community of Faith

From united to divided kingdoms and into exile, 1–2 Kings and 1–2 Chronicles tell the sometimes sordid and often inspiring tale of Israel’s struggle to be God’s people under a human ruler. This study offers a glimpse into the priorities of the authors of Kings and Chronicles, introduces us to major (and some minor) personages both beloved and infamous, and interrogates the power dynamics between prophets, priests, and monarchs. In addition to historical background and in-depth accessible scholarship, this quarter’s contributors share narratives and reflections on ways they are personally inspired and challenged by the stories of faith and faithlessness in these Scriptural texts.
