Notes: "This collection of fourteen essays has its roots in the work of the Chronicles-Ezra-Nehemiah Section of the Society of Biblical Literature. The committee ... chose the topic, 'Was the chronicler a historian?', for the section's theme session at the 1994 annual meeting of the SBL. The first three papers of this book were presented on 19 November at that conference and address the issue from what can be generally designated comparativist (Hoglund), historical and geographical (Rainey), and literary (Kalimi) approaches. The second part ... consists of articles that investigate a particular theme or genre of material in Chronicles and attempt to assess its value for historical reconstruction."--Introduction.
