Patrick Henry Reardon

The Old Testament Books of Chronicles contain some of the most neglected passages in all of Scripture. Understanding their message can be difficult and daunting task for the modern reader. Father Patrick Reardon brings these important books to life, unfolding their powerful message for our own day and age. Like any family history, the story of Chronicles is told with a distinct purpose in mind. It asks the question: "What was the real and lasting significance of King David and his house?" Beginning with the long list of names of the first chapter, this heritage is revealed in cosmic significance. It has in fact become the family tree of every true believer. The centrality of worship is also clearly revealed in these pages. The life pleasing to God is shown to be the life centered on the true worship that God has revealed to the world in the family history of His people. Far from being irrelevant or antiquated, these truths are alive today, reflected in the liturgy and life of the Church.

About the Author: Father Patrick Henry Reardon is pastor of All Saints' Orthodox Church in Chicago, Illinois, and a senior editor of Touchstone. He is the author of Christ in the Psalms, Christ in His Saints, The Trial of Job, as well as more than 500 articles, editorials, and reviews, published in Books and Culture, Touchstone, The Scottish Journal of Theology, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, Pro Ecclesia, St. Vladimir's Theological Quarterly, and other journals on three continents.
