Dr. Eugene Merrill’s A Commentary on 1 & 2 Chronicles is one volume in the Kregel Exegetical Library series. As he explains in his “Preface,” the Chronicler sets forth the history of his people as the last, if not one of the last, writers of the Old Testament. The writer presents the covenant violations of his forefathers. However, he also understands that God plans to restore and redeem His people. Therefore, Merrill seeks to develop the full theological implications while interpreting the details of the text. Since the Chronicler records genealogies, Merrill provides readers with a superb introduction to the study of biblical genealogies. Adhering to a firm conviction in biblical inerrancy, he interprets the text with a literal, historical, and grammatical methodology. Thirteen charts help elucidate the text.
