The latest title by Patrick Henry Reardon in his Bible Commentary Series. Author of Christ in the Psalms, Christ in His Saints and The Trial of Job. The Old Testament Books of Chronicles contain some of the most neglected passages in all of Scripture. Understanding their message can be difficult and daunting task for the modern reader. Patrick Reardon brings these important books to life, unfolding their powerful message for our own day and age. Like any family history, the story of Chronicles is told with a distinct purpose in mind. It asks the question: “What was the real and lasting significance of King David and his house?” Beginning with the long list of names of the first chapter, this heritage is revealed in cosmic significance. It has in fact become the family tree of every true believer.
