“The Chronicler wrote as a pastoral theologian. The congregation he addressed was an Israel separated from its former days of blessing by a season of judgment. The books of 1 and 2 Chronicles address a divine word of healing and reaffirm the hope of restoration to a nation that needed to regain its footing in God’s promises and to reshape its life before God.The Chronicler expounds the Bible as he knows it, skillfully weaving his commentary into the linear text of Israel’s history. His theme is straightforward–the promises of God revealed in the Davidic covenant are as trustworthy and as effective as the God who first uttered them.In two volumes Martin Selman provides an excellent interpretation of these sorely neglected yet profound books of the Old Testament. This volume on 2 Chronicles continues to build on the groundwork laid by its companion in 1 Chronicles.” -Amazon.com

“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.
The Mentor commentary series maintains a conservative theological tradition whilst interacting with modern theologians from other backgrounds” -Amazon.com
