This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.
In his introduction De Vries sketches the canonical setting of the books of Chronicles, especially in relation with Ezra-Nehemiah, and then discusses the redacted and original versions of Chronicles. He describes Chronicles as genealogical and narrative history that tells who/what ideal Israel is, how it has suffered by its unfaithfulness, and how it will remain true Israel by trusting in God.

— Yale University
"S. J. De Vries's form-critical analysis of 1 and 2 Chronicles is a thoroughly competent treatment of this difficult and much-neglected portion of the Old Testament. The writer's well-balanced, solid treatment provides a most reliable guide through much unchartered territory and will be welcomed by all serious students of the Bible."
— Union Theological Seminary
"Based on impeccable erudition and written with the flair of a pioneer enamored of the landscape, this form-analytical and genre-setting commentary restores to Chronicles the oft-neglected appeal of an unlikely subject: the marriage of genealogy with temple music and splendor for the sake of an ideal Israel."
