The book of Chronicles has had a chequered past.
Neglected for many years under the fortunate name of Paraleipomen or 'Things omitted', meant that they occupied a subordinate position in the Scriptures until the 4th century AD when the title 'A Chronicle of the whole Sacred History' was suggested instead. This has since been shortened to Chronicles and the rest is, literally history.
Probably penned by Ezra, Chronicles is a selective history of the Jews encouraging them to trust that God is intimately involved in their story. Written at a time when the Jews were newly out of captivity and with their capital city in ruins, Chronicles assures them of God's faithfulness.
If they would obey and serve him then his people would still enjoy his blessing.
Cyril Barber has also written Focus on the Bible's commentary on 1 Chronicles.
