In The Chronicler in His Age, the content of the book of Chronicles characterizes a range of information and concentrates on the nature and composition of Judah and Jerusalem. Ackroyd also notes that the Chronicler had a deep concern for those who were exiled and the theology that also was a part of their lives.
By being designated as “the Chronicler,” the theory of the author being in a central point is given, but according to Ackroyd, that idea must be made accurate so that we can have a larger view of the interpretation that is a part of that period of time.
