Product Description

In this latest addition to the esteemed Anchor Bible series, scholar Gary Knoppers examines one of the most neglected books of the Hebrew Bible and establishes its importance to understanding the nation of Israel.What was the place of the monarchy in the history of ancient Israel? Was Israel's first king Saul a hero or a disaster? Was David a highly gifted leader and accomplished king or a murderer and a cheat? Did Solomon preside over the most glorious epoch in Israelite history or did he lead the nation into a fateful decline?

Knoppers shows how the Bible itself contains a variety of fascinating perspectives on major events and characters. One of the most misunderstood books of the Bible, "Chronicles" presents a distinctive and important viewpoint on much of Israel's past, especially the monarchy. Knoppers shows how "Chronicles" defends the transition from Saul to David and upholds the Davidic-Solomonic monarchy as a time of incomparable Israelite achievement and glory, a period in which the nation's most important public institutions, the Davidic dynasty, the Jerusalem Temple, the priests, and the Levites - took formative shape."

I Chronicles 10-29, part of a two-volume set on "I Chronicles", is the first to employ systematically the witness of the Dead Sea Scrolls to reconstruct the biblical author's text. Knoppers shows how Chronicles is related to and creatively drawn from many earlier biblical books and presents a fascinating look at its connections in both compositional style and approach to historical writings attested in ancient Mesopotamia and classical Greece.
