Product Description

Paul Hooker suggests here that 1 and 2 Chronicles are not a "history of Israel," but rather a theological reflection on the story of Israel's faith. The Chronicler uses the narratives of Samuel and Kings, skillfully edited and augmented, to develop his vision of Israel. At the center of that vision lies the assertion that Israel is the people of God, selected by God from among all the nations, and set apart to worship God in the place of God's choosing(Jerusalem) and in the manner of God's intent(according to the instructions of the Torah). His ultimate purpose, however, is not to dwell on long ago. Rather he seeks to sketch the lines of Israel's future as the people of God by drawing on the resources of Israel's past. Books in the Westminster Bible Companion series assist laity in their study of the Bible as a guide to Christian faith and practice. Each volume: Explains the biblical book in its original historical context Explores its significance for faithful living today Is ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and Basic Overview: Theologically Progressive Non-Technical(no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew needed) Based on the NRSV Bible translation Written from a historical perspective Ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups groups
