Opening up 1 Chronicles

Andrew ThomsonSKU: OU1Chron2891 ISBN: 9781846252891



The book of 1 Chronicles is often neglected, yet it has so much to teach us—even the genealogies! Along with 2 Chronicles, 1 Chronicles surveys Bible history, charting the gracious purposes of a faithful God over the centuries, with the aim of encouraging and enlightening its readers. Here, Andrew Thomson draws out key lessons and principles to help us avoid the pitfalls and enjoy the blessings that God's people Israel experienced. Promises and praise are central themes which will warm our hearts as we set about responding to David's call to seek the Lord and his strength.

‘The 29 chapters of 1 Chronicles might seem dry history at first read but Andrew Thomson shows how the Chronicler uses the history of all Israel to encourage the newly returned exiles in their task of rebuilding the nation. Opening Up 1 Chronicles relates past history to the church of our day. With great simplicity, but clarity the author draws out many helpful lessons for us.’
—Michael Bentley, retired evangelical pastor, Bracknell, Berkshire.

‘For any reader opening up Chronicles and wondering about its purpose in the biblical canon, here is the place to begin: eminently readable (even chronology and genealogy come alive!), the perceptive commentary and application always bring us to Christ and the thoughtful study and group questions lead to a deeper understanding of this little read part of Scripture. A more than worthy addition to this valuable series.’
—Brian Edwards
