1 Chronicles (Hermeneia Series)

Ralph W Klein

$135.00

Hardback
"Here, finally, is the first of two commentary volumes encompassing meticulous and lucid interpretations of everything there is to be pondered at in that eminently theological composition of the postexilic period. Text, ancient manuscripts and versions, English translation, literary growth, forms, history, near eastern geography and ethnology, geo-politics, archaeological evidence, theological concepts--the author pays scrupulous attention to every bit of significant testimony.... produces priceless insights for everyone interested in Hebrew Scriptures and Biblical theology."

- Publisher This commentary takes full advantage of recent advances in the textual history of Samuel and Kings, demonstrating in many cases that the differences often ascribed to the Chronicler came in fact from the divergent copy of the canonical books he was rewriting. Klein brings to lively expression the unique theological voice of the Chronicler and demonstrates there have been far fewer secondary additions to the text than is normally assumed.
