It is impossible to reach ultimate finality or consensus concerning any Old Testament book. This study represents an attempt to come to grips with the controversies surrounding 1 and 2 Chronicles. In an attempt to determine the reason(s) for the ongoing and the never-ending debate concerning the historical accuracy, the date, the authorship and the identity of the so- called Chronicler, a study has been made of the historically true picture of the historic period or the date of origin usually ascribed to this work, namely the final days of the Persian Empire.
