Audible Editor Reviews

Logos Bible Study presents Dr. Bill Creasy's lesson on the first book of Kings. Detailing the fall of David and the proceeding chaos, Dr. Creasy makes this complex history that spans centuries both funny and smart with modern analogies and comprehensive historical context. The audio lecture illuminates important concepts including kingships and covenants as well as the symbol of Solomon's temple and Israel's religious infidelity. With a background in teaching and English literature, Dr. Creasy's performance reveals his expert timing, both comic and dramatic. His lesson tells a fascinating story of events long ago that remain very much relevant today.

Slightly distracted

While Dr. Creasy was on his usual informative and scholarly game, in the early chapters on Solomon he tended to get distracted and kept jumping ahead to Solomon's son, Rehoboam. The loss of continuity is the reason for the loss of one star. But once past that early point, the rest of the book is excellently presented - especially the gleeful depiction of Jezebel's (literal) downfall.
