Product Description

The Chronicler of Israel wrote as a pastoral theologian. The congregation he addressed was an Israel separated from its former days of blessing by a season of judgment. The two books of Chronicles address a divine word of healing and reaffirm the hope of restoration to a nation that needed to regain its footing in God's word of promise and to reshape its life before God.

In two volumes, Martin Selman provides a masterful interpretation of, and lucid commentary on these sorely neglected yet profound books of the Old Testament. This first volume, on 1 Chronicles, provides a full introduction that surveys the Chronicler's method, summarizes major theological themes and serves as a valuable entree into the heart of the work we now know as 1 & 2 Chronicles. A complete introduction surveying the author's methods and key theological themes accompanies the passage-by-passage commentary. The commentary is conservative and Evangelical in theology, with top-notch scolarship. A knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

This classic commentary has been completely retypeset and presented in a fresh, vibrant new large paperback format, with new global branding.

Publisher's Description

The Chronicler wrote as a pastoral theologian. The congregation he addressed was 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 to a nation that needed to regain its footing in God's promises and to reshape its life before God. The Chronicler expounds the Bible as he knows it, skillfully weaving his commentary into the linear text of Israel's history. His 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. In two volumes Martin Selman provides an excellent interpretation of these sorely neglected yet profound books of the Old Testament. The first volume on 1 Chronicles provides a full introduction that surveys the Chronicler's method, summarizes major theological themes and serves as a valuable entrée into the heart of the work we now know as 1 & 2 Chronicles. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Editorial Reviews

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."

    The TOTC tends toward compact commentary. Selman produces an excellent overview of 1 Chronicles. For those not interested in a lot of discussion into Hebrew grammar, this volume is a good choice.

    Selman's two volumes on the Chronicles are very accessible. He writes well and has a keen insight. This is a very solid exposition.
