1 Kings begins with the last days of David, continues with the glorious days of Solomon’s reign but then disobedience and decline resulting in a divided kingdom and idolatry. Elijah and Elisha confront the evil perpetrated by the kings and they point people to the one true God.
This useful resource, alongside the others in this growing ‘Teaching the Bible Series’, is for those who have the privilege and joy of teaching or preaching a particular book or theme from the Bible. Whether you’re a leader of a small group, preacher or a youth worker, it will help you to communicate the message from 1 Kings whether it is a word for believers or the opportunity to teach evangelistically.

“The Teaching series is a great resource for Bible study leaders and pastors, indeed for any Christian who wants to understand their Bible better.”
~Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC
“The need of the hour is Bible knowledge. When knowledge fails, faith fails, and we are shaped instead by cultural forces alien to God. This teaching series, written by skilled and trustworthy students of God’s word, helps us to understand the Bible, believe it and obey it. I commend it to all Bible readers, but especially those whose task it is to teach the inspired word of God.”
~Peter Jensen, Retired Archbishop of Sydney, Sydney, Australia
“North India desperately needs men and women who will preach and teach the Bible faithfully and PT’s Teaching series is of great value in encouraging them to do just that.”
~Isaac Shaw, Executive Director, Delhi Bible Institute, New Delhi, India
“The task of moving from the text of Scripture to clear and faithful exposition is challenging. This series of excellent guides aims to help the Bible teacher to observe what is there in the text, and prepare to convey its significance to contemporary hearers. In this way these volumes often do more than the weightier technical commentaries. It is like having the guidance of an experienced coach in the wonderful work of rightly handling the word of truth”.
~John Woodhouse, Retired Principal and Lecturer in Doctrine and Old Testament, Moore College, Sydney, Australia
