Overview

The Chronicler addressed an Israel separated from its former days of blessing by a season of judgment. The books of 1 and 2 Chronicles bring a divine word of healing and reaffirm the hope of restoration. The Chronicler's theme is straightforward - the promises of God revealed in the Davidic covenant are as trustworthy and as effective as the God who first uttered them.

Martin Selman provides an excellent interpretation of these sorely neglected yet profound Old Testament books. He surveys the Chronicler's method and summarizes major theological themes.

    The introduction, which covers 1 & 2 Chronicles in the digital copy of the Tyndale Commentaries I own, is superb. It orients the Chronicler and his work in time and space and also explains the different purpose of the book when compared to Samuel and Kings. The vast summing up of virtually the entire Old Testament also helps you appreciate even the seemingly impenetrable beginning and most of the ending of 1 Chronicles. The 9 chapters of vast genealogies at the start and the lists of Levites and others at the end are simply dull reading to a modern. While the commentator tried to make them interesting, he sometimes slipped into that droning voice of history teachers. Often a commentary is offered for a section of the text and then is somewhat repeated in the verse by verse commentary. When given the opportunity in the middle of the book to comment on David's reign, the commentary improves. Much like Leviticus and the second half of Joshua, it is tough to write an "introductory" commentary for 1 Chronicles. While brevity might have been given a higher priority in the commentary and 1 & 2 Chronicles combined in one volume, the obvious amount of effort that went into this work along with the fine introduction make it worth reading.
