Publisher's Description

The Old Testament book of Chronicles presents unique problems to students of the bible. Here Dr. Roddy Braun takes a fresh look at the biblical text and sheds light upon its meaning for God's people in both Old Testament times and today. Taking careful note of Chronicles' dependency upon earlier Old Testament writings, he leads the serious bible student through such issues as:

  • The relation of 1 Chronicles to parallel passages in Samuel and Kings
  • What "the Chronicler" intended to convey with his own independent contributions to Israel's history and theology
  • The role of Solomon's temple as a uniting force for the Chronicler, who faced the reality of the division between Israel in the north and Judah in the south
  • The book's emphasis upon God's covenant with David as reaching its goal in the construction of the temple.

.... The author -- with his remarkable combination of scholarly insights and pastoral experience -- also notes the themes of unity, joy, and generosity in worship emphasized by the Chronicler. He was apparently anxious not simply to reunite the kingdom, but also to restore spiritual depth and enthusiastic support to worship -- issues that continue to be vital to the people of God today.
