Format: Paperback
This book makes the study of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles much easier, since it shows the parallel passages next to each other on the same page. The pages are conveniently divided into 2 larger columns, one for the Judah, one for Israel. This method takes much of the confusion out of trying to figure out what is going on where and when, since the "overlaps" are shown side-by-side. I think such a harmony in essential to have available to the Christian community. I myself teach Sunday School and have found it indispensible. My only objection to this particular harmony is that Mr. Crockett has seen fit to rearrange the chronology in places (rather than just going straight through Samuel and Kings, incorporating Chronicles where it overlaps). His way of doing it has made it difficult for those without harmonies to follow what it going on.

In English, there are three important harmonies and synopses of the Hebrew Bible’s/Old Testament’s historical books: [1] William Day Crockett, A Harmony of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles (Baker, 1951; hereafter “Crockett”); [2] James D. Newsome, Jr., ed., A Synoptic Harmony of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles with Related Passages from Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezra (Baker, 1986; Wipf & Stock, 2006; hereafter “Newsome”), and [3] John C. Endres, ed., Chronicles and Its Synoptic Parallels in Samuel, Kings, and Related Biblical Texts (Liturgical Press, 1998; hereafter, “Endres”).

Lead (primary) text to which all others are paralleled. Crockett and Newsome, Samuel and Kings. Endres, Chronicles.

Overall recommendation: Newsome, if working from Samuel-Kings. Endres, if working from Chronicles. Both are synopses which structure the texts in an easier format to use for comparative reading than a harmony such as Crockett’s which cites blocks of text without any attempt to match them line by line. Either is much more up to date than Crockett.

English text. Crockett’s text is the [English] Revised Version (1884), Newsome’s is the RSV (1971) with some adaptations to gain consistency with the Hebrew text, and Endres’ is adapted from the New RSV Catholic Edition (1989).

Texts that are paralleled. Crockett’s Appendix (pp. 349-352) lists Genesis, Joshua, Ruth, Ezra, Nehemiah, Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Matthew and Luke; additionally, his Index (pp. 356-365) points you to section numbers and page numbers for all passages in Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles. Newsome’s Index (pp. 271-275) lists 1 & 2 Chronicles, Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezra, but the book actually includes 1 Samuel 31 and all of 1 & 2 Kings, too. Endres’ Appendix (pp.

This really helps put the kings and prophets in a time order. It also helps if you do this yourself, and summarize it in your own words.
It will take you a while, but you will understand the good kings (few) and the bad (most) ones. Then you can put the rest of the
Old Testament prophets and books where they should be.

This harmony is similar to a harmony of the Gospels. There is no real commentary; the passages are simply arranged in columns so the reader can better understand sequences and the full details of accounts that are referenced in Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles.

This is a book for pastors, academics, or laymen who are planning an extensive lesson/sermon series on some the characters in these narratives or academics who have interest in chronology.
