IVP Academic 1 Chronicles: Tyndale Old Testament Commentary [TOTC]

The Chronicler of Israel wrote as a pastoral theologian. The congregation he addressed was an Israel separated from its former days of blessing by a season of judgment. The two books of Chronicles address a divine word of healing and reaffirm the hope of restoration to a nation that needed to regain its footing in God's word of promise and to reshape its life before God.

In two volumes, Martin Selman provides a masterful interpretation of, and lucid commentary on these sorely neglected yet profound books of the Old Testament. This first volume, on 1 Chronicles, provides a full introduction that surveys the Chronicler's method, summarizes major theological themes and serves as a valuable entree into the heart of the work we now know as 1 & 2 Chronicles. A complete introduction surveying the author's methods and key theological themes accompanies the passage-by-passage commentary. The commentary is conservative and Evangelical in theology, with top-notch scolarship. A knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

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

The TOTC tends toward compact commentary. Selman produces an excellent overview of 1 Chronicles. For those not interested in a lot of discussion into Hebrew grammar, this volume is a good choice.

Selman’s two volumes on the Chronicles are very accessible. He writes well and has a keen insight. This is a very solid exposition.
