Mentor 1 and 2 Chronicles
1 in stock
The book of Chronicles (1&2) is one of the most neglected portions of Scripture. Many find its complex history unfamiliar and assume that it is irrelevant for contemporary life. To grasp the significance of Chronicles for our times, we must first understand its original meaning. It was written to encourage the Jews to be faithful to God (and not focus on material prosperity) on their return from Babylon. Pratt looks skilfully at the big picture in each section and presents the detail in an absorbing way.
"Richard Pratt's exemplary commentary is systematic, scholarly, sober and simple...Professor Pratt's style is simple and clear...he sketches the complicated lineage of the high priesthood...so clearly that any reader can discern at a glance the lay of the land."
