The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible advances the assumption that the Nicene creedal tradition, in all its diversity, provides the proper basis for the interpretation of the Bible as Christian scripture. The series encourages readers to extend the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition to our day.
Brazos enlists leading theologians to read and interpret Scripture for today, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Each volume is designed to serve the church—providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups—and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of Scripture.
"Leithart does an excellent job of working through the text of Chronicles systematically while at the same time consistently weaving the major themes of his interpretation...Leithart also engages faithfully with literary and historical features that shape the narrator's records. The approach is a healthy balance between remaining in the focus text and bringing broader theological understanding to bear...Leithart's commentary is a helpful addition to the existing works on Chronicles both for the academy and the pastorate." - Ben Hutchison, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"This is a fine example of a commentary designed to help those who simply want to gain some insight into a biblical book without having to encounter questions or problems that tend to be of interest only to specialists." - John R. Baker, OFM, The Bible Today
