"I Chronicles" (Volume 12 in the acclaimed Anchor Bible series) is a book closely related to three other books of the so-called Chronicler's History-- "II Chronicles," "Ezra," and "Nehemiah." "I Chronicles" begins with the famous genealogical lists (from Adam to David), continues with an account of David's reign, in which the chronicler emphasizes David's efforts to restore the religion of Israel, and concludes with the accession of Solomon to the throne of Judah.

A crucial book for historians of the biblical period and for students of the Bible, "I Chronicles" is to be neither accepted as a faithful narrative of the Davidic period nor dismissed as a fanciful, imaginative re-creation of that history. It must be taken as an important clue to the biblical process. For here we find the Bible quoting itself--sometimes directly, sometimes in paraphrase.

Professor Myers meticulously analyzes important aspects of the Chronicler and his work--his method of composition, his conviction that to rebuild the nation of Israel one had to restore and strengthen her traditional religion, his significantly post-Exilic perspective. The book also examines the vast literature on Chronicles to find what it yields toward a better understanding of the Chronicler and a fuller appreciation of his work. Finally, it compares--in exhaustive detail-- "I Chronicles" with the other books in the Bible to which it is parallel. The volume Professor Myers has produced is no less than a definitive treatment of the subject.

Character and Scripture: Moral Formation, Community, and Biblical Interpretation

product image
$34.00
This volume by some of today's leading Christian thinkers sets forth the theological and ethical nature of scripture and explores the way in which the Bible plays a crucial role in the moral formation of community.

Covering a wide range of issues, these chapters demonstrate the useful and challenging intersection between biblical interpretation and ethics. The contributors investigate the formative impact scripture makes on its readers and examine the community's job of not only interpreting the biblical text but also integrating its moral character into the daily life of faith. This volume not only discusses these subjects in the most comprehensive manner yet, but it also offers practical examples of moral formation in action.

Contagious Witness: Exploring Christian Conversion

product image
$19.00
God s call to salvation is a call to a conversion from one way of life to another. Christians know that they are called to participate in the conversion of others by bearing witness to the salvation they have experienced in Christ. Yet most, uncertain of how they will be perceived and of the appropriate times and circumstances in which to share the gospel, are intimidated by the biblical mandate to witness to others. Through extensive interviews, Ronald Crandall and his associates have asked a basic question of thousands of Christians: How did you come to believe? The answers they have found provide important, practical guidelines for pastors and all those who seek to help others learn to engage in personal witness. The key, Crandall asserts, is the fact that most of us come to faith through certain central relationships. These relationships are principally with our parents or other family members, our friends, our Sunday school teachers or other lay workers in the church, and our pastors or youth leaders. How one comes to faith through each of these relationships is surprisingly different. By using the stories of how others experienced personal conversion, Crandall offers essential insights into the proper ways and contexts in which to share the Christian message
