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.

“(a) First of all, Chronicles can be treated as a history book.” (Page 21)
“Remembering in the Old Testament includes acting upon that which is recalled, and is much more than a purely intellectual exercise.” (Page 176)
“The frequency of speeches or sermons in Chronicles has led some to the conclusion that the author was ‘ ‘preaching’ his people’s history’, or that he was ‘a preacher of pastoral theology’.” (Page 25)
“It is a great encouragement to every reader that the God who possesses everything also gives freely to everyone.” (Page 269)
“The use of such inadequate transport showed David unthinkingly continuing a Philistine superstition (1 Sam. 6:7), and failing to ‘seek’ God (1 Chr. 15:12–15, especially v. 13). In other words, Israel got into difficulties because they failed to recognize that worship of the true God meant they could no longer simply follow contemporary pagan practices.” (Page 159)
