Because of the size and scope of I&II Chronicles, this commentary focuses on two main issues. According to the author, " However, attention has mainly been directed to two other areas, which are the heart of the book: the literary aspect, where my goal was to shed light upon thee book as a historical composition and upon the methods and means chosen by the author to convey his ideas; and that of theology, where I meant to illuminate the author's goals, the comprehensive structure of his spiritual world as reflected in the book, and his message. Because of limitation of time and space I could not devote all due attention to the history of exegesis and research. What I omitted is worthy of inclusion, though this was not possible." This commentary is written in technical format and employs Hebrew and Greek (LXX) throughout the entire work.
