In this theological reading of 1 and 2 Chronicles, Peter Leithart uncovers the narrative logic of Chronicles, highlights the role of music and government in Israel and in the church, and shows how Judah's history moves from the world of the monarchy to the postexilic world in which Israel is scattered among Gentiles. The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible series encourages readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition inform and shape faithfulness today. As with other volumes in the series, this commentary is designed to serve the church -- providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups -- and to demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible. - Publisher.
