Great Britain 1990 Cloth First Edition Fine/Fine 8vo-over 7?"-9?" tall 0521383048 Harback hardback. Based on the 'addresses' in Chronicles, the 'speeches' in the Books of Exra ... and Nehemiah and the post-exilic prophetic books. This book compates the 'addresses' in the Books of Chronicles with similar material in the Books of Ezra and nehemiah and in the post-exilic prophets. it is Dr. Mason's contention that recurring themes and homelietical devices suggest that these 'addresses' (while not to be classified as 'sermons') do reveal something the exegetical and teaching methods employed in the Second Temple period, which are here echoed. By studying the contents and aim of this preaching, the author sets out to clarify the process by which past traditions were reinterpreted for the post-exilic community during the Persian and greek periods; he is able to show thereby how links were maintained with ancient Israel within a context of faith, and how the carful exegesis of earlier scriptual material kept this fai Read more Show Less

Overview

This book compares the addresses in the Books of Chronicles with similar material in the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah and in the post-exilic prophets. Dr. Mason contends that there are many features of style, theme, and purpose in these latter books that closely echo features found in the addresses. The striking parallels suggest that the later material has been influenced by homiletical style and preaching practice in the second temple period. Mason shows how the careful reinterpretation of tradition kept faith alive for the post-exilic community in the most challenging circumstances.
