Peter Leithart Commentary on 1 & 2 Kings

As part of my Advent discipline, I'm reading 1 & 2 Kings one chapter at a time, then reading Leithart's commentary on that chapter from the new Brazos Theological Commentary. Here's one paragraph that gives a flavor:

In the previous chapter [7] we saw that the temple provides a useful entrée into ecclesiology, but a temple ecclesiology exists only because Christ himself is the human temple of Yahweh (John 2:21). First Kings 8 provides a starting point for a templar Christology.

This is the first book I've read in a very long time that I read and am enriched theologically and spiritually at the same time, as if devotion and study were two sides of the same coin.
