“It is difficult to imagine any theological question asked in this generation on which the book of Chronicles is likely to shed any light.” So wrote John McKenzie, A Theology of the Old Testament (Garden City: Doubleday, 1974), p. 27. [Thanks to Keith Stanglin for pointing me to this quote.]
I only wish I had known that before I wrote a 500+ page theological commentary on 1 & 2 Chronicles.
Uh…..I think McKenzie was off just a wee little bit. 🙂 But given that my commentary is a 2.5 million seller (that is, it is in the top 2.5 million best sellers!), he may be on to something. 🙂
