The Chronicler addressed 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. The Chronicler's 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.

Martin Selman provides an excellent interpretation of these sorely neglected yet profound Old Testament books. This first volume on 1 Chronicles surveys the Chronicler's method and summarizes major theological themes.

This classic commentary has been completely retypeset and presented in a fresh, vibrant new large paperback format, with new global branding.
