Taking a careful look at the setting, form, and content of I and II Chronicles, J. G. McConville describes how these two often neglected books present God's purpose for his people at a crucial time in their history--the period of restoration after the Exile. He shows the author, referred to as the Chronicler, to be "a theologian, sharing with all the biblical writers the burden of interpreting God's ways to human beings." The Chronicler uses the history of the monarchy, particularly the reigns of David and Solomon, as models to be imitated by their successors. They exemplify how faithfulness results in blessings for the people; unfaithfulness, as personified by Saul, in impoverishment. Although the second book ends with the destruction of Jerusalem, the Chronicler concludes optimistically, looking forward to the return of the people to their land and anticipating the endless possibilities existing for those who walk with God.
