The Forms of the Old Testament Literature series is a series of commentaries that seeks to approach the text from a form-critical perspective. Each volume focuses on the structure, genre, setting, and intention of each passage. The aim is to provide the exegetical tools for students and pastors to discover their own interpretation of Scripture. Here Simon De Vries offers his insight and years of research to the series as he explores 1 and 2 Chronicles. De Vries confesses that although he was initially apprehensive about tackling these books because of his unfamiliarity with them, he came to see the "...Chronicles as one of the richest mines of spirituality in all of Scripture." And like an actual mine that requires much effort and the proper tools, this volume provides the fruit of De Vries' effort and gives the reader the tools to better understand and interpret the text. Readers will also find this volume valuable for its bibliographies. Simon J. De Vries is Professor of Old Testament at Methodist Theological School in Ohio.
