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.

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 and 2 Chronicles.
