Although the books of Chronicles have been viewed as supplementary or alternative to the books of Kings, they contain important details in their own right. The book of 1 Chronicles is devoted to David’s life, and 2 Chronicles offers an account of King Solomon, and the succession of kings which followed. The story ends with a proclamation from Cyrus, freeing the kingdom of Judah from captivity. In this commentary, the history of the Chronicler is explained in accessible and easy-to-understand language.
