Excerpt from The First Book of Kings: With Introduction, Notes, and Maps
The notes in this edition aim at guiding the reader of the text, rather than at using it as the starting point for the discussion of difficult questions. Thus where a point is not known with some degree ... of probability, it is as a rule passed by in silence; and details of little significance in geography, or the fittings of the Temple, are not discussed. But it not unfrequently happens that the notes are fewest where the text is most interesting.
The author has kept recent theories about the Old Testament and the religion of Israel constantly in 'mind, and Without obtruding them prematurely, hopes that he has prepared the way so that when the time comes for facing them, as come it must, there will be less shock than if the traditional views had been confidently asserted.
