Item description for Commentary-1 & 2 Chronicles (NIV App Comm) by Andrew E. Hill...
Overview The NIV Application commentary 1 & 2 Chronicles applies the books to today's culture by bringing the lenses of historical awareness, literary appreciation, and a biblical-theological perspective to bear on the Chronicler's sermons.
Publishers Description The Chronicles are more than a history of ancient Israel under the ascent and rule of the Davidic dynasty. They are a story whose grand theme is hope. Great battles are fought, heroes and tyrants vie for power, Israel splits into rival kingdoms, and the soul of God s holy nation oscillates between faithlessness and revival. Yet above this tossing sea of human events, God s covenant promises reign untroubled and supreme. First and Second Chronicles are a narrative steeped in the best and worst of the human heart---but they are also a revelation of Yahweh at work, forwarding his purposes in the midst of fallible people. God has a plan to which he is committed. Today, as then, God redirects our vision from our circumstances in this turbulent world to the surety of his kingdom, and to himself as our source of confidence and peace. Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Andrew E. Hill shares perspectives on 1 and 2 Chronicles that reveal ageless truths for our twenty-first-century lives. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable---but the job is only half done The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today."

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-1 & 2 Chronicles (NIV App Comm)?
Outstanding commentary on misunderstood books Jan 7, 2008
As I have been studying through the Old Testament, I certainly wasn't looking forward to plowing through the lists and (so I thought) rehashed history of the books 1 & 2 Chronicles. This commentary, however, brought those lists and history to life in a way that I could never have imagined. Dr. Hill is a gifted writer, and uses the strengths of the NIVAC series to present an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable commentary. I have already given my copy to a friend to enjoy, and I recommend this commentary without any reservations. I think you'll find yourself immersed in the world of the Hebrews and come to an understanding of their minds and their scripture that Christians have come to use for their knowledge and edification.
