First and Second Books of the Chronicles by R.J. Coggins

Book Description

The Chronicles, divided into two books purely for convenience, have long suffered from neglect; this is partly because much of their content can be found elsewhere in the Old Testament and partly because their presentation, emphasizing genealogies and ritual ceremonies, has lacked appeal for modern man over the last few hundred years. Yet these books, with their theological interpretation of historical events, are a valuable source of illumination about the Judaean community living under Persian rule about 350 B.C. and its special relationship with Jerusalem and its temple and with God. In his introductory section, Mr Cog ,ins discusses the probable origins and the nature and purpose of 'the Chronicler's' work (whether that of a single writer or a group) and then examines each book separately. In the established style of the series the N.E.B. translation of the text then follows, divided into brief sections and alternating with passages of commentary. The results of recent Old Testament scholarship and modern theological thought are conveyed in simple language to the student and layman.

Books By Author R.J. Coggins

Introducing the Old Testament by R.J. Coggins Introducing the Old Testament, Hardback (December 1989)

Study of the Old Testament has long been dominated by what is sometimes called the 'historical-critical method'. Is this approach the only proper one and are there alternative understandings which are equally valid? This book attempts to outline some alternatives while retaining the values of the traditional methods.

First and Second Books of Esdras by R.J. Coggins First and Second Books of Esdras, Paperback (June 1979)

The two books of the Apocrypha treated here have little in common apart from the attribution of their authorship to Ezra (Esdras in Greek), the 'second founder' of Judaism.

Books of Ezra and Nehemiah by R.J. Coggins Books of Ezra and Nehemiah, Paperback (April 1976)

Unlike the First and Second Books of the Chronicles, the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah have received considerable attention.
