1 and 2 Chronicles for Everyone

1 and 2 Chronicles for Everyone

'He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. He walked in the
ways of his father David.' How we long to read these words when we
encounter a new king in the books of Chronicles; yet how little we do. The
stories of the monarchies of Israel and Judah teach us profound truths about
worshipping the living God in the way that he prescribes and the consequences
of not doing so. To emphasize the importance of holy, God-centred living, 1 and
2 Chronicles revisit the lists of Numbers and the world of the books of Samuel
and Kings. But unlike 1 and 2 Kings, the focus in Chronicles is almost entirely
on the southern land of Judah and the tribal lines of promise - the sons
of Levi (the priests) and of Judah (the kings descended from David) -
which prefigure Jesus, the great Priest-King to come.

Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his
considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the
unfolding story of the Old Testament. And, as he guides us in our understanding
of these time-honoured words and the ancient world they describe, he helps us
to apply what we read to our lives.
