1 & 2 Chronicles
A Mentor Commentary
To grasp the significance of Chronicles for our times, we must first understand its original meaning. Many find its complex history unfamiliar and assume that it is irrelevant for contemporary life. It was written to encourage the Jews to be faithful to God on their return from Babylon and not focus on material prosperity. It couldn’t be more relevant! Pratt looks skilfully at the big picture in each section and presents the detail in an absorbing way.
“Richard Pratt’s exemplary commentary is systematic, scholarly, sober and simple…” Bruce Waltke ~ Professor of Old Testament, Emeritus, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida
