  • Includes study questions

Former Principal of London Seminary, Philip Eveson, shows the unchanging relevance of the book of Chronicles for us today.

In today's world, when Old Testament books like Chronicles are denied as being historically inaccurate, Eveson constantly shows us that the opposite is true. Throughout the commentary, he not only argues that it is free from historical error, but God-breathed, and therefore able to make us wise for salvation. Far from being irrelevant to the modern reader, Eveson brings helpful, insightful application from the Biblical narrative.

Eveson's commentary is split over two volumes: Volume one containing 1 Chronicles and Volume two containing 2 Chronicles. However, he reminds us that 1 and 2 Chronicles are one undivided book and they should be read as such.

The genealogical line that the chronicler wrote of all looked to the Messiah. In reading Chronicles, so should we. The commentary is appropriate for all Christians who desire to see their Lord in all the scriptures. Eveson helpfully includes an application section with each passage that shows how it points to Jesus.

This book will be helpful to any readers who are seeking to find a deeper understanding of the books of Chronicles.

… lucid, scholarly, accessible, and reverent … likely to be my 'go to' commentary on these books.
--Christopher Ash, Writer-in-Residence, Tyndale House, Cambridge

These two volumes display excellent linguistic knowledge, fine theological discernment, and most useful practical application of passages. This is what makes them so significant, and they will be welcomed as an outstanding contribution to the books of Chronicles.
--Allan Harman, Research Professor of Old Testament, Presbyterian Theological College, Melbourne, Australia

One's head hurts to think of all the labour Philip Eveson poured into this study of Chronicles … all along his applications keep the kingship of Jesus in clear view. Makes me want to go back and study through 1-2 Chronicles all over again.
--Dale Ralph Davis, Respected Author and Old Testament Scholar
