Product Description

Louis C. Jonker explores and synthesizes recent developments in the scholarship on 1&2 Chronicles for modern readers, allowing them to understand the message and theology of these books that have too often been seen as mere repetitions of other Scripture. He reads Chronicles as literature that negotiates a new socioreligious identity in a period of political transition, expertly relating it to readers living in the twenty-first century.

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms highlighted and all Hebrew transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography and Scripture and subject indexes are also included.
