Hermeneia: 2 Chronicles: A Commentary (Herm)

Overview

This volume completes Ralph Klein’s magisterial commentary on 1 and 2 Chronicles. Klein incorporates the breakthroughs of the last half-century of research. He shows that the chronicler used a text of Kings significantly different from the Masoretic Text; argues that the chronicler’s departures from the historical picture of Kings result from a distinctive theological agenda for fourth-century Judah; and explores the contours of that message—what it meant to live faithfully, to participate in temple and worship life, in the absence of political independence.
