 Chronicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A dead chronicle is one where the author gathers his list of events up to the time of his writing, but does not record further events as they occur.
The term often refers to a book written by a chronicler in the Middle Ages describing historical events in a country, or the lives of a nobleman or a clergyman, although it is also applied to a record of public events.
Various fictional stories have also adopted "chronicle" as part of their title, to give an epic proportion impresssion to the story.

 Book of Chronicles
The two Books of Chronicles are the 13th and 14th books of the Old Testament in the Authorized Version of the Bible.
The time of the composition of the Chronicles was, there is every ground to conclude, subsequent to the Babylonian Exile, probably between 450 and 435 B.C. The contents of this twofold book, both as to matter and form, correspond closely with this idea.
The close of the book records the proclamation of Cyrus permitting the Jews to return to their own land, and this forms the opening passage of the Book of Ezra, which must be viewed as a continuation of the Chronicles.

 Books of Chronicles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was originally written as one book, but in the Septuagint (LXX), the book appears in two parts, and in the fifteenth century, it began appearing in two parts in Hebrew Bibles.
This division into two parts may be in accordance with more manageable scroll sizes, and thus in Christian bibles it is usually published in two parts, I Chronicles and II Chronicles.
The Books of Chronicles are ranked among the Kethubim, the third section of the Tanach, and they usually occupy the final position in Hebrew bibles, although some Hebrew bibles place Chronicles at the first of the Kethubim.

The two books are really one work, and are treated as one in the Hebrew manuscripts and in the Massoretic summary appended to the second book.
The objects of his interest are the temple and its worship, and he intends primarily to write the religious history of Juda with the temple as its centre, and, as intimately connected with it, the history of the house of David.
Gross exaggerations, such as the slaying of 7000 charioteers (1 Chronicles 19:18) as against 700 in II Kings (x, 18) and the impossibly large armies mentioned in II Paralipomenon (xiii, 3), are plainly to be attributed to this cause.

 Chronicles, Books Of (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) :: Bible Tools
In most of the VSS, as in the English, the Books of Chronicles are placed after the Books of Kings, as being a later account of the matters narrated in Kings; and Ezra and Nehemiah follow Chronicles as being continuations of the narrative.
In I Chronicles 10:13 and I Chronicles 10:14 the Chronicler condenses into a sentence a large part of the contents of 1 Samuel; one clause in particular is a condensation of 1Sa.
It is alleged that the Chronicler views the glories of the past as on a larger scale than that in which they are presented in the earlier books, but this is not uniformly the case.

 Books of Chronicles or Paralipomenon or Paraleipomena
These books of Chronicles are in a great measure repetition of the books of Samuel and Kings; so are much of the second and third of the four evangelists: and yet there are no tautologies either here or there no vain repetitions.
The main difference with Samuel and Kings is that Chronicles intends primarily to write the religious history of Judah, the People of God, the Church of God, with the ark and the temple as its center...
Chronicles ignore the Northern Kingdom of Israel except where the history of Judah requires mention of it, because the Northern Kingdom were rebels against the rightful successors of David.

The book of Kings looks upon the history in the spirit of the prophets—in that spirit which is still echoed by Zech.
Chronicles is the result of the development of earlier schemes, of which some traces are still preserved in Chronicles itself and in Ezra-Nehemiah.
Many parts of the book offer a very hard task to the expositor, especially the genealogies, where to other troubles are added the extreme corruption and many variations of the proper names in the versions; on these see the articles in the Ency.

According to an Italian judge, Ferdinando Imposimato of the Italian Supreme Court of Appeal, who introduces Souaïdia's book, an independent commission of enquiry should now be constituted to investigate allegations of torture and human-rights abuses in Algeria, along the lines of that set up to investigate, for example, the Pinochet regime in Chile.
In his book, Souaïdia make other highly damaging allegations concerning the actions of the Algerian army in the period 1992 to 1995, among them being that the use of torture was generalised and that, in order to carry out the bloodthirsty deeds that they were assigned, officers and men habitually resorted to drugs and alcohol.
It would be a pity if Yasmina Khadra, the sharp and ironic chronicler of events in 1990s Algeria, were from now on to write only in the rather self-regarding way exhibited on certain pages of her latest novel.

 USCCB - NAB - 1chronicles - Introduction
The Books of Chronicles record in some detail the lengthy span from the reign of Saul to the return from the Exile.
The Chronicler proposed to establish and defend the legitimate claims of the Davidic monarchy in Israel's history, and to underscore the place of Jerusalem and its divinely established temple worship as the center of religious life for the Jewish community of his day.
"The books of the kings of Israel," or "the books of the kings of Israel and Judah," "the history of Samuel the seer," "the history of Nathan the prophet," "the history of Gad the seer," "the commentary on the Books of Kings," are some of the documents mentioned as historical sources.

Psalms 96, 105, and 106 are cited in 1 Chronicles 16.
The standard terminology for cultic personnel in the Chronicler is "the priests and the Levites." The priests are sons of Aaron and descendants of Zadok.

This is a book that attempts to explain...and there is no ghost writer credited, no academic and no life long obsessive Dylanologist, just the man himself claiming sole authorship.
Chronicles isn't the usual celebrity autobiography - it's not about childhood tramaus, or Battles with Bulimia, or near-fatal accidents and platitudes, or brand new diets that worked for Bob - and is not even the usual literary autobiography.
The book, like memory, is structured thematically rather than chronologically; and some people here joke that the years selected by Dylan to concentrate were, in fact, randomly chosen.

Ultimately, this book will stand as a record of a young man’s self-education, as contagious in its frank excitement as the letters of John Keats and as sincere in its ramble as Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, to which Dylan frequently refers.
The book reveals a devoted family man who has spent much of his life plugging away at his craft and trying to shield himself and his loved ones from the glare of offstage attention.
This is the first book I've read in a long, long time that spoke to me, that I related to, that had any depth, that I wasn't required to sift through pages of crap to get down to brass tacks and illuminations.

 Doubleday Books | I Chronicles 10-29 by Gary Knoppers
Knoppers shows how Chronicles defends the transition from Saul to David and upholds the Davidic-Solomonic monarchy as a time of incomparable Israelite achievement and glory, a period in which the nation’s most important public institutions—the Davidic dynasty, the Jerusalem Temple, the priests, and the Levites—took formative shape.
I Chronicles 10-29, part of a two-volume set on I Chronicles, is the first to employ systematically the witness of the Dead Sea Scrolls to reconstruct the biblical author’s text.
Knoppers shows how Chronicles is related to and creatively drawn from many earlier biblical books and presents a fascinating look at its connections in both compositional style and approach to historical writings attested in ancient Mesopotamia and classical Greece.

I have read all of the Vampire Chronicles about half a dozen or more times each and with the exception of "Vittorio", I found each as compelling as the next (although "Body Theif" does seem to sag a bit after a while) Anne Rice is an exceptional writer with a wealth of imagination.

It’s not until late in Chronicles, which is being advertised as Volume One of a three-part autobiography, that the few episodes that Dylan works to describe in the book become clear.
Dylan’s sense of storytelling in Chronicles is a songwriter’s, which is to say that it’s circular and recursive.
At 20 he was open to a hard-eyed pragmatic, philosophical book about war that taught him the value of self-doubt and of seeing external events in terms of his inner life.
