Description: The books of Chronicles contain a complete resume of early Jewish history, beginning with the creation of man and ending with the proclamation of Cyrus, King of Persia, permitting his Jewish subjects to rebuild the Second Temple and return to Zion.
A careful study shows Chronicles to be one of the most perplexing and difficult books in all of Scriptures. In this study of Chronicles, Rabbi Eisemann bases his commentary on the available homiletical literature in the Talmud and Midrash and on the philosophical foundations of Maharal. He provides an enlightening perspective on the text, on the role of King David in Jewish history, and on the place of Israel in the scheme of Creation. this volume will more than fulfill the great expectations with which it has been awaited.
The ArtScroll Series presents the comments of the classic giants of ancient and contemporary times in a logical, comprehensible manner, like a master teacher on an exciting voyage of intellectual discovery.
