The Message of Chronicles
One Church, One Faith, One Lord
1 & 2 Chronicles are, first and foremost, a sermon meant to foster a right relationship between God and his people. With great perception, the Chronicler shows how the records of Israel reveal the pattern of God's hand in the events of his nation’s history and how, within that pattern, the Lord's constant mercy, love and faithfulness shine through.
In this readable and thoughtful commentary, Michael Wilcock explores how once that purpose is grasped, the message of 1 & 2 Chronicles comes alive. The Chronicler’s sermon is a final and momentous look back over the entire Old Testament, and the countless persons named are part of one people of the living God.
With perceptive insight, Wilcock guides us through the two halves of the Chronicles, paralleling them the vibrancy, contrast and drama of the Book of Revelation in the New Testament, and showing how the Chronicles make vivid to us the truths by which the Lord's people in every generation are to live.
