Among the least read (and most misunderstood) books in the Old Testament are 1 & 2 Chronicles. Yet, we will discover in this course that this material has a vital message for the church and academia today. As the last books of the entire Hebrew Bible, Chronicles is uniquely positioned to provide what a prominent scholar refers to as one of the richest mines of spirituality in all Scripture. The post-exilic period, when Chronicles was composed, witnessed the production of new kinds of literary and theological works. Prerequisite: BIBL 0501.
