1-2 Chronicles – Andrew E. Hill – NIV Application Commentary

NIV Application Commentary 1-2 ChroniclesAndrew E. Hill is the author of the 1-2 Chronicles volume in the NIV Application Commentary series.

Dr. Hill takes an evangelical approach to these books.

Fulfilling the series’ purpose, he combines exegesis and application in this commentary.

The Chronicles are more than a history of ancient Israel under the ascent and rule of the Davidic dynasty.

They are a story whose grand theme is hope.

Great battles are fought, heroes and tyrants vie for power, Israel splits into rival kingdoms, and the soul of God’s holy nation oscillates between faithlessness and revival.

Yet above this tossing sea of human events, God’s covenant promises reign untroubled and supreme.

First and Second Chronicles are a narrative steeped in the best and worst of the human heart-but they are also a revelation of Yahweh at work, forwarding his purposes in the midst of fallible people. God has a plan to which he is committed.

Today, as then, God redirects our vision from our circumstances in this turbulent world to the surety of his kingdom, and to himself as our source of confidence and peace.

Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Andrew E. Hill shares perspectives on 1 and 2 Chronicles that reveal ageless truths for our twenty-first-century lives.

Andrew E. Hill (PhD, University of Michigan) is a professor of Old Testament studies at Wheaton College in IL. He is the coauthor with John Walton of A Survey of the Old Testament and the author of Malachi in the Anchor Yale Bible commentary series. His articles have appeared in such scholarly publications as Hebrew Annual Review, Journal of Biblical Literature, and Vetus Testamentum. [1]

The NIVAC Series

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible.

But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own.

They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application.

The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done!

The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together.

This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context.

It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
