5.0 out of 5 stars The Chronicler's Descendant, May 20, 2012
This review is from: The Kingdom of God as Liturgical Empire: A Theological Commentary on 1-2 Chronicles (Paperback)
The Chronicler has been called "the first theologian of the canon." In this regard, Hahn is surely a descendant of the Chronicler. In the "The Kingdom of God as Liturgical Empire", he masterfully explicates the theological meaning of 1-2 Chronicles using Jewish, Patristic, and the best of modern critical exegesis. Hahn highlights that the Chronicler is not merely relating history, but instead gives a theological view of Israel's story from the beginning with Adam through Moses up to the end of the Babylonian Exile. With the Davidic Covenant in the forefront of the Chronicler's work, 1-2 Chronicles brings out the centrality of the Jerusalem Temple for the Davidic Kingdom, with its liturgy as the driving force of the empire. At each step of the way, Hahn shows the significance of this for the life of Israel in God's divine plan and also its importance for the life of the New Israel, the Church. This book should be digested carefully by all seminarians, biblical scholars, theologians, and anyone else who desires to understand God's word in Sacred Scripture. It is a first rate example of what Pope Benedict has called for in his Apostolic Exhortation, Verbum Domini. If you want to see an example of biblical theology done with academic rigor from the heart of the Church, this is the book for you.
