The Interpretation Commentary Series
is a modern treatment of the scriptures designed to help preachers better communicate the Bible. In this volume, Tuell tackles 1 and 2 Chronicles, which St. Jerome claimed held "the meaning of the whole of sacred history." Though these two books are not popular, Tuell effectively shows how the books of Chronicles present the revelation of God's plan and purposes through the story of Israel, emphasizing the important place that King David and his line play within that story. Using up-to-date scholarship, Tuell focuses on the theological message of these books-that the purpose of life is to seek God in the words of Scripture and in the worship of the temple: that those who seek and find God's will and purpose for their lives, and live accordingly, experience blessing; and that God's presence and activity are found in the events of ordinary life. 252 Pages. Hardcover from Westminster John Knox Press.
Steven S. Tuell is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia.
