The author of Chronicles used much of Samuel and Kings in presenting his version of Israel's "history". With this book, readers can easily see how the Chronicler refashioned many texts Samuel-Kings and incorporated details from other biblical books such as Psalms and Isaiah.
This book facilitates the study of the historical books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles in the Hebrew Bible. It illustrates how the Chronicler refashioned many texts in Samuel-Kings and also incorporated texts and details from other biblical books such as the Psalms and Isaiah. Since many biblical translations of these books have not focused on the issue of parallels, this book features a fresh translation based on the principle of synoptic parallels. The book visually demonstrates that the Chronicler was a student and interpreter of sacred texts as well as a historian for his era. For students of Samuel-Kings (and the rest of the Deuteronomistic history) this book provides an important key to an understanding of that history in the early Jewish era in which Chronicles was written. It assists those whose interests in these books are religious and theological as well as literary and historical.
