The Theologian of Hope: The Chronicler and His Purpose for Writing (Paperback)
Many modern believers neglect the Old Testament for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons include the literary, historical and cultural differences they encounter in the text. The book of Chronicles, though, bridges the gap between the Old Testament and the New Testament period. It does this by summarizing the Old Testament and pointing to the hope which is realized in Christ. The Chronicler encouraged his audience, the Post-Exilic community, to renew their hope in spite of their present disappointments. This hope, of course, was not realized until Christ. This present book highlights the uniqueness of the Chronicler's perspective and its implications on the gospel of Christ.
