RELATED TITLES UNIQUE SELLING POINTS 978-0-8254-2559-2 39.99 Hardcover 6 x 9 640 pages Biblical Commentary Old Testament Kregel Academic Rights World Available A thorough exegetical analysis of each passage of 1 and 2 Chronicles The trauma of the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple the exile of thousands of Judeas citizens and the subsequent return after seventy years to the homeland with the difficult task of starting the new covenant community virtually from scratch all contributed to a reassessment of Israels meaning and destiny. The chronicler-theologian thus composed his work not just as a history of his people from their ancient beginnings but as an interpreted history one designed to offer hope to the beleaguered community as well as to issue warnings that should they fall back into the ways of their fathers they could expect the judgment of God to be repeated. Eugene Merrills work on 1 and 2 Chronicles promises to be a significant contribution to the academic dialogue on these important books. This volume is helpful for the scholar but acces- sible and useful for the pastor. Merrill provides an exegetical study of each passage in these books examining a number of themes especially drawing out three principal theological subjects 1 David and his historical and eschatological reign 2 the renewal of the everlasting covenant and 3 the new temple as a symbol of a reconstituted people. Merrill offers astute guidance to preachers and teachers in his insightful doctrinal commentary on the text. Eugene H. Merrill is distinguished professor emeritus of Old Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas Texas. His other publications include Kingdom of Priests. 27 BIBLICAL STUDIES ISBN 978-0-8254-2559-2 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 2 5 5 9 2 A Commentary on 1 2 Chronicles Eugene H.
