This is a textual analysis rather than a theological or historical commentary - of value to translators rather than pastors or teachers. It assumes a knowledge of Hebrew and an interest in manuscript variants and translational difficulties. There is little insight into the historical or theological context, and no help for a reader wanting to understand the motivations and consequences of the progression to elaborate ceremonial Temple worship replacing the earlier expressions of devotion to Yahweh derived from Moses.

WBC’s volumes on 1 & 2 Chronciles are written by different authors which makes them a little bit uneven. Most agree that Dillard’s is superior but that both are excellent resources. Longman praises Dillard’s volume by saying, “This commentary makes 2 Chronicles come alive. It is superb in its analysis of the theological message, given 2 Chronicle’s composition in the postexile period. It is one of the few Old Testament commentaries that explores connections with the New Testament.” [Full Review]

Although they are on the more technical side, the commentaries by Braun and Dillard in the Word Biblical Commentary series are indispensable for serious study of the text. Each also offers helpful theological insight, sometimes missing from technical commentaries. The layout of the Word Biblical Commentaries can take some getting used to, but in the case of these two works, it is worth the effort. [Full Review]
