Book Review: Cornerstone Biblical Commentary on 1-2 Chronicles

This was the first commentary that I have come across from the series, Cornerstone Biblical Commentary, and it was a commentary that I found helpful and useful. The book I was given covered 1-2 Chronicles. There is a wealth of information packed into this commentary. It gives excellent background information on the books, human authors, major themes, who it was written to, and then individual verse comments. But, because of all of the information that is given, it becomes a little "cluttered" at first glance and is a little difficult to navigate. But, once you get used to it, you can find the information quickly that you are looking for. The only personal drawback I have of the book is that it is based of the New Living Translation. But, just have out your King James Bible as you read it and you will come across a wealth of information as you prepare messages, or just want to dig a little deeper for your own personal knowledge.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
