9780825425592: A Commentary on 1 & 2 Chronicles (Kregel Exegetical Library)

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 Judea's 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 Israel's 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 Merrill's 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 accessible 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.

About the Author:

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.

Review:

"Beginning with nine chapters of genealogies, readers (and even preachers) often neglect the book of Chronicles. After all, Samuel-Kings covers much the same historical ground. Eugene Merrill, one of the foremost interpreters of the Old Testament today, carefully and skillfully guides us through the theological and historical dimensions of Chronicles, showing its unique richness. His work illumines the book of Chronicles for today’s readers. I recommend it for all serious students of the Bible, but especially for pastors who want to (and should) preach from this fascinating book." (Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College 2015-09-15)

"Although Chronicles is one of the longest books in the Bible, it is also among the most neglected. Thankfully, scholars in recent decades have begun to remedy this unfortunate deficit. Readers will welcome, therefore, the detailed attention given to historical, comparative, and theological issues in the substantive commentary of Eugene Merrill." (Gerald Knoppers, John A. O’Brien Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame 2015-09-15)
