CHRONICLES I & II (Interpretation Commentary by Steven Tuell)(Hardcover)
The great Christian scholar St. Jerome said that in First and Second Chronicles we find “the meaning of the whole of sacred history.” Yet these two Old Testament books are not popular, and are seldom studied and preached upon in Christian churches. In this commentary, Steven Tuell shows how Chronicles presents us with the entire sweep of God’s dealings with humanity. The books of Chronicles show how God’s plan and purposes are revealed through the story of Israel, and the important place that King David and his line play in that story. Featuring up-to-date scholarship, Tuell focuses on the theological message of these books––that the purpose of life is to seek God in the words of Scripture, and in the worship of the temple; those who seek and find God’s will and purpose for their lives, and live accordingly, experience blessing; and God’s presence and activity are found in the events of ordinary life.
