  • A thorough exegetical analysis of each passage of 1 and 2 ChroniclesThe trauma of the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, the exile of thousands of Judea s citizens, and the subsequent return after seventy years to the homeland with the difficult task of starting the new covenant community virtually from scratch all contributed to a reassessment of Israel s meaningA thorough exegetical analysis of each passage of 1 and 2 ChroniclesThe trauma of the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, the exile of thousands of Judea s citizens, and the subsequent return after seventy years to the homeland with the difficult task of starting the new covenant community virtually from scratch all contributed to a reassessment of Israel s meaning and destiny The chronicler theologian thus composed his work not just as a history of his people from their ancient beginnings but as an interpreted history, one designed to offer hope to the beleaguered community as well as to issue warnings that should they fall back into the ways of their fathers they could expect the judgment of God to be repeated.Eugene Merrill s work on 1 and 2 Chronicles promises to be a significant contribution to the academic dialogue on these important books This volume is helpful for the scholar but accessible and useful for the pastor Merrill provides an exegetical study of each passage in these books, examining a number of themes, especially drawing out three principal theological subjects 1 David and his historical and eschatological reign 2 the renewal of the everlasting covenant and 3 the new temple as a symbol of a reconstituted people Merrill offers astute guidance to preachers and teachers in his insightful doctrinal commentary on the text.

    1. Summary: A commentary on these post-exilic books that emphasizes the hope of a restored kingship for Israel, the renewal of God's covenant, and the rebuilding of the temple as the center of Israel's religious life.For readers of the Bible the beginning of 1 Chronicles may be either one of those places where they give up or decide to skip over nine chapters of genealogies. True, these are tedious going, but Merrill's commentary helped me realize how these are indicative of at least two important [...]


    2. If you are looking through and evangelical commentary on the historical books of 1 and 2 Chronicles, A Commentary on 1 &2 Chronicles, by Eugene H. Merrill published by Kregel Academic is what you are searching for. This commentary is a recent volume in the Kregel Exegetical, a series which is synonymous with superior exegesis and gripping application, this volume continues the long legacy. This volume is one of the most articulate and practical modern commentaries on two very neglected books [...]


    3. As a pastor, I always appreciate books that combine exegesis, theology and erudition all together. Technical commentaries are always useful, though most of them lack expositional issues. Narrowing the theme even more, exegetical commentaries on 1 & 2 Chronicles are not abundant, even less commentaries that combine exegesis and exposition in a balanced way.1 & 2 Chronicles by Eugene H. Merrill, from Kregel Exegetical Library, is an excellent resource for pastors and Bible students as it p [...]


    4. I find reading 1 & 2 Chronicles difficult. It isn't the genealogies or long lists of temple attendants, musicians and officials. When I encounter these in the Bible, I just read faster. My difficulty is in the narrative itself. When you read Kings, you discover the dynastic declines of Israel and Judah and a prophetic critique of the monarchy, which explains why God's people went into exile. Chronicles tells a different tale. Kings of Judah described as evil turn out to be redeemable (i.e Da [...]


    5. Typically those who utilize commentaries are attracted to volumes that engage with the more shall we say popular books in Scripture such as Romans, the Gospel of John, and perhaps Revelation. Reading a commentary on one of the historical books of the Old Testament is arguably not always at the top of everyone’s list. If true, I find the neglect of books such as 1 & 2 Chronicles to be unfortunate given such a book provides a needed framework for the historical flow of God’s plan, his deal [...]


    6. Eugene Merrill's A Commentary on 1 & 2 Chronicles (Kregel Exegetical Library) is a wonderful help for pastors and Sunday School teachers that deals with one of those neglected texts from the Old Testament tradition: The Chronicler's history.A Commentary on 1 & 2 Chronicles begins with an introduction to the literary tradition of the Chronicler's history, and focuses on those typical introductory matters one finds in commentaries -- such as the historical and cultural setting, authorship, [...]


    7. 1 & 2 Chronicles is not a book that you will often hear preached expositionally. Part of the reason, I think, is how the book starts with 9 chapters of genealogies! Pastors will definitely not want to attempt to preach through these chapters expositionally.Preachers can now reach out to a helpful commentary on the 1 & 2 Chronicles. Eugene Merrill has written a new commentary on 1 & 2 Chronicles, a book that has been neglected by commentators for quite some time. As with every comment [...]


    8. Seasoned commentator Eugene Merrill gives us a full-scale commentary on an oft-overlooked portion of Scripture–the books of Chronicles. This volume is a fine addition to the developing series called the Kregel Exegetical Library series. I expected this to be an excellent volume based on several other commentaries by Merrill that adorn my shelves, and I was not disappointed!His Introduction fills the first 70 pages. While as scholarly as you would expect, this Introduction covers issues in a wa [...]


    9. By far the least insightful, least pastoral, and least interesting commentary in the Kregel exegetical series. It's greatest value is in its various charts mapping out the genealogies and tribal relations. I don't expect this commentary to become popular for any significant reason other than it being the most up-to-date. My favorite commentary of 1-2 Chron is the WBC, even though that has two different contributing authors.
