In The Kingdom of God as Liturgical Empire bestselling author and theologian Scott Hahn views the author of Chronicles as the first biblical theologian.
Chronicles, argues Hahn, offers the first attempt to understand and interpret the entire sweep of Old Testament history from the creation of the world to the Israelites' return from exile. Thus Hahn's commentary presents 1-2 Chronicles as a liturgical and theological interpretation of Israel's history. Hahn emphasizes the liturgical structure and content of Chronicles and provides fresh insight on salvation history: past, present, and future.
He also shows how Chronicles provides important insights into key New Testament concepts. The book gives professors, students, and pastors a better understanding of Chronicles, salvation history, and makes a significant contribution to the growing field of Old Testament theological interpretation.
