Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book Tradition and Transformation in the Book of Chronicles and its chapters. The past forty years or so have seen a complete transformation in the study of the Book of Chronicles. Present day study of the Book of Chronicles has done away with former domination by the parallel texts in the Books of Samuel and Kings. An immense avalanche of dissertations and articles on specific topics is solid proof that the Book of Chronicles can now be investigated on its own merits. The classified bibliography on Chronicles, which was published by Isaac Kalimi, is a clear indication that the study of Chronicles has grown to maturity. This book pays attention both to specific texts and to particular topics of the Book of Chronicles. It exemplifies some terminology and points of view that are now widely accepted.

Keywords: Book of Chronicles; Isaac Kalimi; Samuel; tradition
